Ancelotti: Beckham showed he can still play 90 minutes

Carlo Ancelotti says Paris Saint-Germain does not need Cristiano Ronaldo and will not be making a move for the Real Madrid player.

The Italian stated it is not difficult to manage top-class players such as the Portugal international and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but insists he is not looking to pair the two together.

“Can Zlatan and Ronaldo can play together? All quality players can play together. You know, it’s not hard to manage a guy like Ibrahimovic. Ronaldo is a fantastic player, but today, I do not think of him,” he told RMC.

Following the departures of forwards Nene and Guillaume Hoarau, there has been speculation les Parisiens will look to bolster their attack with big-money signings.

However, the former Chelsea coach believes he does not need to make any additions to his team in the transfer window and made it clear no deals will be done.

“Nenê and Hoarau are gone, they won’t be replaced because the team is good. We don’t have to buy. The transfer window is closed for us,” he added.

The 53-year-old also added his belief that PSG is on course to lift the Ligue 1 title, providing he guides his side in the correct manner, but stated the difficulty of doing the same thing in the Champions League.

“We have to be champions. We clearly have the qualities to win. It all depends on the coach. If the manager does his job, then PSG is going to win," Anceliotti said. "If we do not win it? Yes, it will clearly be a failure. The Champions league is harder.”
