Lucas Moura to start against Ajaccio, says Ancelotti

The Paris Saint-Germain boss is set to give the young Brazilian his Ligue 1 debut against the Corsican outfit and is confident he is up to the task after a seamless integration.
Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed that he is planning to hand Lucas Moura his debut for the club when it faces Ajaccio on Friday.

The 20-year-old's move to the Parc des Princes from Sao Paulo was confirmed in the summer but only completed on Jan. 1 at the end of the Brasileiro season.

"Lucas Moura will start against Ajaccio," Ancelotti told reporters at his press conference. "He has no problems fitting physically and technically. Even if he still has progress to make, he has no problem communicating with the other Brazilian players who are here."

One Brazilian who appears to be on his way out from PSG is Nene, who has expressed his desire to return to his homeland. Ancelotti confirmed that the club is trying to help Nene find a new team in the near future.

"There is no news on Nene," Ancelotti said. "He wants to leave the club. We are looking for the best possible solution. I cannot do anything."
