Oriane Jean-Fran├žois: 'A really good challenge'

The new Paris Saint-Germain midfielder tells PSG TV about the team's pre-season preparations, and the upcoming encounter with Barcelona.

Oriane, HOW DO YOU FEEL AFTER THE FIRST PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY?

"Really good, I feel very well. Pre-season is progressing and I've settled well into the squad. We got back into training a few weeks ago. We played our first friendly on Thursday and we're playing again on Friday."

WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THE GAME AGAINST Manchester United?

"There were some good things in that first game against Manchester United, quite a few things we need to keep going, and some things that we still have to improve in order to head into the new season calmly. There's always a bit of tiredness after your first match, but we're competitors and we still want to do well and win."

YOUR NEXT OPPONENTS, FC Barcelona...

"They're a big club that has got all its international players back. From our side, they returned a little later, so they're not in the best shape right now. But we have a squad capable of causing them real problems. It'll be a really good challenge. Playing against such teams gets you into the groove right away."
