Lacombe: PSG is one of Europe's top four clubs

Former coach Guy Lacombe has expressed his admiration and high expectations for Paris Saint-Germain, a team he already sees as one of Europe's elite.

The former Rennes boss believes that the side will almost certainly win Ligue 1 this season as the club is far better than anyone else in the league.

"PSG are already so superior to the other [French teams]," the 57-year-old said to Le Parisien. "Paris [Saint-Germain] are built to win the championship, but are also built for the Champions League, where I already see them as a top eight or top four team."

The former French striker praised current les Parisiens coach Carlo Ancelotti for his work at the capital club.

"Ancelotti
has a vision and it fits perfectly. The game starts and PSG operates like an Italian team – strong and offensive."

Paris Saint-Germain faces Sochaux in its next Ligue 1 match before facing Porto in a Champions League group stage match.
