Paris-Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted in a recent interview that he thought winning League 1 would be easy. He said he wasn't aware of the challenge his team would be up againts, but is confident they will finish on top at the end of the season.
This term, PSG are top of the table, and Ancelotti is confident that the all-star team assembled by the owners and Leonardo can triumph.
"This is not my team," he told The Daily Mail.
"This is the team of the owner, as I said at Chelsea. But I feel good. I thought it would be easier, but after one year I can say it’s not so easy because the championship here is difficult.
"There are good players, good teams here and, because we have spent a lot of money, we have to win."
He is confident that the Parisian side can become one of the best teams in Europe over time.
"Paris Saint-Germain will be a team like Manchester United, like a top team, in Europe," the 53-year-old added.
"I don’t know how long it will be, but it will be for sure. We want to do it as soon as possible but it’s not so easy to build a team buying players. You buy them but then you have to put them together and that job takes time."
David Beckham joined the club earlier this week on a five month deal, Ancelotti says he is very happy and excited to have the opportunity to work with the former English International.
"I’m very happy to have him here," he added.
"He’s a fantastic professional and will help the team this season. About the age, I remember that Paolo Maldini won the Champions League in 2007 at the age of 38. This means that when you are professional, you are forever young."
PSG also face Valencia in the Champions League 1st knock-out stage.
