Ibra is definitely happy at his own words....

"I consider this team as the same level as other teams I have played for," he said. "But we have to go out and show it on the pitch. If you look on paper we are definitely up there. But we have to show it. We have to win.
"Now that the dream has become reality everyone is talking about Ligue 1. Everyone should be positive about this. But it’s up to us to prove it now. We have to win."
Ibrahimovic’s agent said Sunday that Serie A has lost its last remaining star, and Ibrahimovic agrees.
"I came here because I see the future here. I don’t see the future in Italy," he said. "What happens in Italy is their problem now. Losing two big stars like me and Thiago Silva is a big thing for the club and the championship.
"For sure the Italian championship without us will be more poor, but I don’t know if it will have less quality. What I know now is that with us the French championship will be better and more watched in the world."
"I want to thank PSG and Leonardo," Ibrahimovic said. "They made something impossible possible and now I am very happy. It’s a big step in my career, another dream come true.
"I know there’s been a big media interest in this. It’s been more intense than when I moved to Barcelona. I’m very excited in this project. I’m here to make history and I will enjoy all the trophies we bring home."
"It seems that I will finish my career here but that’s what I said at Milan too," the 30-year-old Ibrahimovic said. "You never know what will happen. But I’m not thinking about that at the moment, I’m thinking about winning during my time here."
"I come to a dream team and the dream team will continue to grow," Ibrahimovic said. "They will do everything to win and I want to be part of that. I’m going to be playing with the best players in the world. They’ve also bought the best defender in the world, Thiago Silva, and as long as I have him behind me I don’t need to look back.
"Who doesn’t want to be here? This is the future and I believe in this, this is the most important. When you look at the team it’s really a dream team. It’s the future not only of French football but also in Europe and even the world."
Italian media has said that Ibrahimovic was forced out of Milan after the club decided the fee for an ageing player was too good to turn down.
"I’m very happy I was there. Milan gave me my smile back," Ibrahimovic said. "I will always have very good memories of Milan. I was very happy. I don’t want to put a shadow over my time at Milan, they made it very easy for me to come to PSG.
"I thank them and I wish them all the luck. They are a great club and I’m sure they will continue to win; they did it without me as well as with me. I did my max as an individual and for the team. I have nothing negative to say about them."

The club’s Qatari owners have already signed Ibrahimovic’s former Milan teammate Thiago Silva and Napoli’s Ezequiel Lavezzi this preseason as well as midfielder Marco Verratti, who was also unveiled Wednesday after completing his move from Pescara.
PSG’s huge outlay last season included spending a French record €42 million ($55.4 million) on Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore, as well as prizing away winger Jeremy Menez from Roma, midfielder Mohamed Sissoko from Juventus, defender Maxwell from Barcelona and midfielder Thiago Motta from Inter Milan.

Ibrahimovic joined Milan from Barcelona on loan in 2010 and the move was made permanent the following year. With 28 goals, Ibrahimovic was Serie A’s top scorer last season — a feat he also achieved with Inter in 2009.
 PSG has paid a reported €20 million ($25 million) for Ibrahimovic, taking its summer spending on new players to an estimated €112 million ($137 million). Ibrahimovic has signed a three-year contract with PSG, worth a reported €14 million ($17 million) net a year, €2 million more than he earned at Milan.


I like Lagos for many being the Governor, Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN). With all his short comings, he got this one is an encouragement for a country plagued by leaders who rarely motivate or inspire us. This incident gladdens my heart.
The Lagos state Governor, Babatunde Fashola on Tuesday arrested a Military Col. Ki Yusuf and Staff Sergent, A J Adeomi for driving on the  Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lane.
The soldiers were accosted on the BRT lane at the Outer Marina in Central Lagos. Col. Yusuf was driving in an army green Peugeot 406 with registration number BO1 – 150 NA. Staff Sergeant Adeomi drove in a black Toyota Camry.
As Mr Fashola moved towards the oncoming vehicle,  Col. Yusuf came down from his car, saluted severally and began muttering: “I am sorry; very, very sorry”
The Governor said: “Why, as a senior military officer, would you choose to break the law instead of preserving it?”
Trust Lagosians, they did not miss the action.
Answering questions from reporters after the incident, the governor described as “very unfortunate” the fact that those who ought to stand in defence of the democratic values of the nation are the ones violating the law.
He, however, added: “But it signifies my commitment and the commitment of the Lagos State Government that all those who will not comply with our laws should leave our state. We will not back down.
“There is a zero tolerance for lawlessness. There is zero tolerance for breach of our regulations and we are going to do more of this. We are going to take control of our traffic. We cannot build our way out of traffic congestion; our responsibility is to manage traffic and manage congestion”.
Insisting that people must behave well, Mr Fashola said: “I don’t use the BRT lane; I sit down in traffic and I expect everyone who wants to drive his car to do the same. The alternative is to use the bus.
“The bus is for those who cannot afford to buy cars. They have the right also to use the road and we cannot encroach on that lane which we have reserved for them. This is democratisation of the road and I will defend it.”
