Ancelotti lauds players

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti praised his players after they battled past Valencia to join the continent’s elite in the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in 18 years.

Now they enter the hat with the likes of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus, with Bayern Munich, AC Milan and Barcelona among the other clubs still looking to join them.

Ancelotti has won Europe’s leading club competition both as a player and as a coach with Milan, so he knows what it takes to go all the way, but he admits that the performances of his newly put-together team have pleasantly surprised him.

‘Nobody knows how far we can go,’ said the Italian.

‘Up to this point we have done very well but this is our first year in the competition for a lot of the players. ‘They have been fantastic so far, and now we will need to see what the draw brings.’
