Javier Pastore: Praise for Carlo Ancelotti

Ancelotti is yet to commit his future to the champions elect beyond the summer with speculation he could move to Real Madrid should Jose Mourinho make his expected Bernabeu exit.

"I would be sad if he leaves. I've had a very good relationship with him in the 18 months that we've worked together," Pastore told a press conference.

"But those are the sorts of things that happen in football. You have to be ready for it."

PSG have been the dominant force in French football for the most part of this season, Ancelotti's first full term in charge, and can wrap up the Ligue 1 title at home to Valenciennes on Sunday night.

Ancelotti also guided PSG into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, where they were edged out by Barcelona on away goals.

"I would like him to stay, he's done great things for the club," Pastore said.

"But it's up to everyone to make their own decisions.

"We've had a very positive year in both the league and the Champions League. It was difficult at the start, but it's ended positively."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
