Ancelotti looks to build on win

3 September 2012 10:33

Relieved PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti has hailed his side's spirit after their first win of the season in a 2-1 victory over Lille on Sunday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring in the first minute with a cool finish past Mickael Landreau before Aurelien Chedjou restored parity with a powerful header 10 minutes later.

But Ibrahimovic then doubled his tally with a fine chip after a superb one-two with Javier Pastore, as the capital club held on to claim their first three points of the campaign.

Although Ancelotti believes there are still issues to be resolved with his expensive squad, he also they have taken a step in the right direction after defeating their title rivals.

"There was good defensive organisation, a good attitude, a good game in attack and the fantastic ability of Ibrahimovic." the Italian trainer was quoted as saying by France Football.

"This is an important victory, we won against a strong team.

"We played faster, with a very good start to the game.

"After scoring, it was easier to have control. We worked hard defensively, we used a lot of energy and the second period was more difficult.

"To build a team how we want (to) is not easy," Ancelotti added.

"I do not think that all the problems are resolved (but) of course, a win can give us a lot of confidence.

"We can use this game and this win to build a better team.

"(For) everyone recognizes that we have a fantastic potential."
