PSG Progress Pleases Ancelotti

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti reckons his side will be now be counted amongst the world’s best after their narrow defeat to Barcelona.

The French side bowed out of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on away goals following a 3-3 aggregate draw with La Liga leaders Barca.

Ancelotti, who led AC Milan to Champions League glory on two occasions, expects his side’s performance will prompt Europe’s big guns to take notice.

"Everybody admits now that PSG are a very important team in Europe," he said. "For this reason, I think it will not be difficult to recruit new players (for next season). Paris has become an important place this year and it could become more important the next year.

"We had a great opportunity to progress to the semi-finals. But we were not able to win. This game was very important for us. The team showed that it was competitive against all the major teams. And to be competitive in Europe was the objective this season, we showed that.

"I was surprised to see a team with this courage, this character, this personality. We played our best game this season against one of the best teams in the world. It could be a good start. With this beginning, PSG can expect a great future."
