Ancelotti pleased by PSG attitude

Carlo Ancelotti highlighted Paris Saint-Germain FC's attitude as key to beating GNK Dinamo Zagreb, whose coach Ante Čačić conceded there was an "obvious difference" between the sides.

Ante Čačić, Dinamo coach
Victory went to the better team. Paris Saint-Germain showed why they are [one of the] favourites. They are the most expensive team in the history of French football and there's an obvious difference between their side and ours. I said before the match and the competition that there is a big difference between the Croatian and French league and the two teams.

Merely playing in the Champions League group stage is a big success for us, even though that sounds like a cliché. For us it's very important to gain some know-how
Ante Čačić

PSG have a lot of very experienced, quality players, who have had good careers; our team is still developing and without much experience. Merely playing in the Champions League group stage is a big success for us, even though that sounds like a cliché. For us it's very important to gain some know-how from match to match.

Carlo Ancelotti, PSG coach
We are very satisfied. We had a good attitude and controlled the game. It was not beautiful, but it was a good match. This is a good result and a good performance. We could have scored more, and when you can get more goals, you should. [Zlatan] Ibra[himović] did not score more than one, but his goal was important. He was less accurate than usual in front of goal.

After a poor performance against Marseille, [Javier] Pastore played well. He played simply and with continuity. [Jeremy] Ménez was very happy with his pass and his goal. I always demand more of him, because he has extraordinary ability. I hope he will play even better.

Our position in the group is good. There are three matches left, and we have the chance at home [against Dinamo] to move on to nine points, which would be good before we play against Dynamo and Porto. It does not put you in the next round, but I think that with ten points you can qualify.
