Ancelotti: PSG played some beautiful football against Ajaccio

The 52-year-old coach heaped praise on his side after their win on Sunday, as they leapfrogged Montpellier into first spot in the Ligue 1 table
Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with his side's 'beautiful' display in their 4-1 win over Ajaccio on Sunday.

Javier Pastore and Jeremy Menez gave the hosts a first-half lead before Guillaume Hoarau and Nene scored late on to secure all three points at the Parc des Princes.

"We played some really beautiful football and we had a lot of scoring chances," Ancelotti told reporters after the game.

"The only downside was that we lost our shape at the beginning of each half.

"It was a great day for us though, with neither Montpellier nor Lille getting a win."

Ancelotti then heaped praise on Hoarau, who scored his fourth goal in nine league appearances.

"Hoarau is improving his form and his confidence match by match. He is setting a good example for the rest of the squad.

"There was a lot of pressure before this match and the lad responded well."

PSG currently top the Ligue 1 table, one point ahead of Montpellier, who could only draw with Dijon on Saturday.
