Jallet upbeat despite 'unconvincing' Paris Saint-Germain win over Troyes

The France right-back believes their second-half performance - which featured two goals from star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic - made up for a soft first 45 minutes
Christophe Jallet has taken the positives out of Paris Saint-Germain’s “unconvincing” 4-0 victory over Troyes on Saturday.

Maxwell scored the first-half opener, before a goal from Blaise Matuidi and two from Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the second half secured all three points for the Parisians.

And although the full-back admitted that PSG were not as clinical as they ought to have been against inferior opposition, he felt that they were much more impressive after the restart.

"Two wins in two games this week is good, as this season will be difficult," Jallet told reporters after the game. "There were mistakes but we tried to resolve them progressively.

"Without avoiding the unconvincing performance, we did win 4-0.

"In the first period, we were too soft despite being in possession of the ball. We could have done better. But in the second half, we were much better.

When asked if he deserves the captaincy at the Parc des Princes, Jallet replied: "It's not up to me to ask this question. We will see if one day I hold that responsibility."
