All we can do is win, says Ancelotti

14 May 2012 15:22

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti said his side were solely focused on beating Lorient in their final game of the season next week.

The Italian was speaking after his side's comfortable 3-0 win over Stade Rennes on Sunday, where a hat-trick from Nene was not enough to close the gap at the top of the table to Montpellier, who lead by three points heading into the final round of matches.

PSG must win at Lorient and hope Montpellier lose away to already-relegated Auxerre, but Ancelotti said all his side could do was focus on earning three points at the Stade Yves Allainmat.

"If Montpellier do go on to win the league then we have to congratulate them," Ancelotti said.

"Our aim now is to win the next match and then see what Montpellier do. They've got a lot of possibilities of winning but we mustn't think about them.

"We have to be happy as we're going to play Champions League football next season and that was an important objective for the club.

"My side have a good identity and the good work that we've put in this season will help us next year. The objective has been obtained, and next season will be more exciting."

Ancelotti then praised his team after their resounding win over Rennes, and went on to preview this weekend's crunch game with Lorient.

"We played well. We were solid defensively and we controlled them. Up front our attackers did a lot of things with Nene scoring a hat-trick, while Jeremy Menez had a fantastic game and (Javier) Pastore supported them well," Ancelotti said.

"We must think only about the Lorient game. It won't be easy to play on a synthetic pitch against a side that need points in order to confirm their Ligue 1 survival."
