Kevin Gameiro admits he is yet to produce his best for Paris St Germain, but insists he has no regrets at having joined the capital giants last summer.
The France international was in the fortunate position of being able to pick and choose his next club in 2011, with his impressive progress at Lorient having drawn plenty of admiring glances.
He opted to link up with PSG, with their Qatari owners outlining ambitious plans for the future.
Gameiro has broken into double figures in terms of goals scored, but new coach Carlo Ancelotti has decided to operate with just one striker in recent weeks.
The Italian also spent much of the winter transfer window looking for added firepower, with the likes of Carlos Tevez and Alexandre Pato strongly linked with a move to France.
Gameiro accepts that things could have gone better for him at Parc des Princes, but he remains convinced that he made the right choice in signing for PSG.
"When I take stock of my season, I think I have been average," he told L'Equipe.
"I have not always been at my best and I have to improve in front of goal.
"The new system has worked well so I can't complain. I prefer to work with two forwards, as then the defenders are not just focused on me and I can find gaps, but I have to adapt.
"The January search for a new forward? I did not let that affect me. Leonardo and the coach explained things to me.
"I have no regrets at having signed for PSG, even if there have been difficult moments. Situations like this can only help you to improve."
