Laurent Blanc: The PSG head coach is unconcerned by player bonuses

The Ligue 1 leaders are on a mind-boggling £830,000 a man as reward from their billionaire Qatari owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Blanc's side are eight points clear at the top of the table and are also set to play in the French League Cup final against Lyon on April 19.

But before that clash, the Parisians take on Chelsea at the Parc des Princes in the first leg of their quarter-final clash on Wednesday 2 April and then travel to Stamford Bridge for the return leg six days later.

Blanc said The Sun: "We're a long way off from being in the final and winning it. The bonuses of the players isn't my concern, it's an internal matter for the club.

"Some of the players would rather win it without getting a bonus."

Blanc added: "To play the second leg at home is a small advantage for Chelsea.

"So we will have to make the difference at home by being solid defensively and scoring goals.

"Chelsea is a team we know well, we watch them often in the Premier League and they have very well-known players."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
