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 they are 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 face Sochaux in their next Ligue 1 matche before facing Porto in a Champions League group stage match.
