In training for this weekend's match against Toulouse, Sylvain Armand, one of the most experienced players in the team, spoke to PSG.fr about the capital club's start to the season before looking ahead to the upcoming games.

Sylvain, what do think about Paris Saint-Germain's start to the season?
"It's been a mixed start, because we could have done better with a fixture list that wasn't too demanding. We should have more points from our opening four games of the season. But we have improved, because against Lille we showed another level of our game. I hope that game really marks the start of a great run for the team."

How are you approaching this Friday's game against Toulouse?
"It will be another difficult match because Toulouse are a very athletic team with very good players. I've watched their games since the start of the season and they are a solid outfit. Toulouse are full of confidence. We have to concentrate on our own game and confirm our good result against Lille. It won't be easy, but it's a game we can win."

You've been at the club for eight seasons now. How is this current experience with the club?
It's very positive. It's fantastic to play in a team like this one since the start of last season. The investments the club has made and the way the club is now run is exceptional for a player. Obviously I'm disappointed not to be playing more, but there's competition for places in every team. I fight every day to play as much as possible. I'm very happy to be in this situation and I haven't lost sight of the goal to win the championship with Paris Saint-Germain."

You are the only player in the squad to have played Champions League football for Les Rouge et Bleu. Are you impatient for the competition to start?
Obviously I can't wait to play in the Champions League again, just like others here can't wait to play in it for the first time. The Champions League is the best competition there is. When you walk out onto the field, when you hear that music... It's extraordinary! To play against great clubs, in great stadia, it will be something new for a lot of us. It's the next step in the new sporting project of Paris Saint-Germain, and we hope to go as far as possible in this competition."

Have you followed your teammates performances with the France national team?
"I speak regularly with Christophe Jallet and Jérémy Ménez on the phone. I know things are going well for them. The 1-0 win over Finland is a good launching pad for them in the qualifiers. I hope Christophe will play on Tuesday against Belarus. I hope for him at any rate!"
