Ancelotti wary of Marseille threat

7 April 2012 20:00

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has warned his players to be cautious of Marseille's attack when the two sides meet on Sunday.

With PSG trailing Montpellier on goal difference at the top of the Ligue 1 table, the Italian is hoping his team can end a three-game winless run against Didier Deschamps' men in Le Classique.

Marseille are on an even worse stretch without a victory, failing to win in any of their previous nine games but Ancelotti is not expecting an easy encounter.

"I think when a team are in dire straits, all matches are good to respond to and OM have the ability to win. We have to take care of their attackers who are very dangerous," Ancelotti said.

"We respect our opponent and the importance of the match. There will be pressure but that's normal. We will play our football for 90 minutes and win."

Meanwhile, Ancelotti again reiterated his desire to bring Real Madrid's Kaka to the Parc des Princes, although he did admit that he is unsure whether the player would be available this summer.

The French club have been linked with the Brazilian in the past and Ancelotti admitted in February that if the player became available, he would be interested.

It is unknown whether Madrid boss Jose Mourinho would be willing to part with the playmaker, who has returned to form and fitness in the past few months, but Ancelotti has made it clear he would like to work with the 29-year-old again, having coached him previously at AC Milan.

"I hope that Kaka comes to Paris but I don't think he will come this summer. If Real Madrid decided to let him go, we would open our door," he said.
