There's a lot of pressure on Paris Saint-Germain, says Sirigu

The Italy international is aware of the high expectations of les Parisiens, but feels it could be difficult to live up to their billing as Ligue 1 favourites
Salvatore Sirigu believes that things will not be as easy for Paris Saint-Germain as many expect in the upcoming season.

Carlo Ancelotti's men are the sky-high favourites to win the Ligue 1 title following the signing of stars such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Ezequiel Lavezzi,

However, the former Palermo goalkeeper, who moved to the French campital last summer, feels there is a lot of pressure on the Paris side to live up to the expectations.

"PSG's project is such an ambitious one that the pressure will be bigger every year. It's a bit like driving a Ferrari. It's not as easy as it seems. You have to know how to drive it," the Italian was quoted as saying by RMC.

"There is always a lot of pressure when you are playing for Paris Saint-Germain. Everybody expects you to win your games easily. But we are a very, very strong team."

Paris Saint-Germain lock horns with Lorient in their Ligue 1 opener on Saturday.
