PSG should be further ahead, says Valbuena

24 February 2013 18:07

Marseille midfielder Mathieu Valbuena has piled the pressure on fierce rivals and Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Carlo Ancelotti's men are top of the table on 51 points heading into the clash with third-placed Marseille on Sunday.

And given that PSG have hugely strengthened in the transfer market this season with the additions of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura among others, Valbuena believes they should be cruising to the Ligue 1 title.

"They have alternated between very good and not very good. They have always been at the top, but they have not dominated the championship," Valbuena told Le Parisien.

"They have quality in all departments, and the fluency of their game enables them to compete with the big European clubs.

"Yes, I could see myself in this team (along with other Marseille players) Steve Mandanda, Nicolas N'Koulou and Andre Ayew."

When asked if Marseille had been overshadowed by the lavish spending from the capital, Valbuena admitted they had, but that it was for good for French football that PSG were able to attract big names.

He said: "PSG have almost unlimited resources to bring in the best players. Good for them and good for Ligue 1.

"The 80,000-euro transfer fee (that Marseille paid to sign me in 2006) means I do not weigh much in comparison, but the most important thing is the performance on the pitch."
