Desailly: PSG too focused on Zlatan

27 November 2012 06:08

Marcel Desailly believes that Paris Saint-Germain rely too much on Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

And Desailly thinks PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti is yet to find a tactical system that bests suits the side.

The ex-Chelsea defender has warned the Ligue 1 table-toppers that they will need to find the right balance in the squad to challenge for the league title and that the role of attacking midfielder Ezequiel Lavezzi will be key.

"They are very dependent on Zlatan Ibrahimovic," he told LeParisian.fr.

"Carlo Ancelotti needs to find a system that suits him. When Ezequiel Lavezzi comes into the team it seems that his presence has a big impact on the players and balances the team a bit."

Desailly also discussed the club's current form and the pressure that they face because of their spending power.

"It is not easy for them," the former Chelsea star added.

"The players must not buckle under the pressure of the fact that everyone expects them to produce great performances every time they play a game.

"The win against Troyes is a massive result because it was their first in three games in Ligue 1. The confidence they can take from this will allow them to go that little bit further in their next game."

PSG took top spot in Ligue 1 on Saturday with their 4-0 thrashing of Troyes, which put them above Olympique de Marseille on goal difference.
