Possession key for Ancelotti's PSG

Carlo Ancelotti hailed Paris Saint-Germain FC's counterattacking and possession as Group A progress was sealed while Oleh Blokhin promised big changes at FC Dynamo Kyiv.

Carlo Ancelotti, PSG coach
Now we have to try to play against Porto to win this group. I think first place is very important to get an easier draw in the round of 16. The team had a good attitude in the first half. Our game was not quite there though, but in the second half we did well on the counterattack. The second half was better.

This is an important result but I'm already thinking about the next game and I want to see the same attitude from my players
Carlo Ancelotti
I have nothing to blame my team for. They tried to play, fought for it, but you simply can't make such mistakes against opponents of that quality
Oleh Blokhin

The team were most efficient when we had the ball at our feet. We enjoyed more possession. This is an important result but I'm already thinking about the next game and I want to see the same attitude from my players in the league. We should not forget what happened against St-Etienne and Rennes [two home losses in a row].

Oleh Blokhin, Dynamo coach
I have nothing to blame my team for. They tried to play, fought for it, but you simply can't make such mistakes against opponents of that quality
. Mistakes differ one from another, and when Denys Garmash misses the target from two metres it's also a big mistake.

We had [17] shots on goal, PSG had only [five]. The fans were complaining, because they're fed up with defeats, but I have no reason to reproach my players. I took my decisions on the future of the team some time ago. It appears as if some players are doing us a favour when they go onto the pitch. Big changes await Dynamo and I will not tolerate any indifference in the team. Everything will be good.
