Ancelotti lauds PSG's 'clear identity'



Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti hailed the title-challengers' newly-discovered "clear identity" on Monday, on the eve of their trip to fifth-placed Valenciennes.

"What we have shown during our last two matches we haven't shown in the past year, a clear identity on the field," said Ancelotti.

"That can help us avoid falling on hard times again," he added.

In crisis following a defeat to Nice last Saturday, Ancelotti's charges responded by beating Porto to finish top of their Champions League group before routing Evian 4-0 over the weekend with a coherent and united display that defied recent insipid performances.

"We must not forget what happened against Saint-Etienne, Rennes and Nice," he warned, however, referring to the trio of losses that knocked PSG from the top of the table.

The Parisians are second in Ligue 1, five points behind leaders Lyon who travel to Parc des Princes on Sunday.
