Ancelotti: 'PSG don't want Lichtsteiner'

Carlo Ancelotti insists it’s “not remotely true” that PSG are making a bid for Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The reports emerged last night with quotes from an unnamed member of Swiss international Lichtsteiner’s entourage.

“It is not remotely true that we are interested in Lichtsteiner,” replied Paris Saint-Germain manager Ancelotti.

“We do want a right-back, but we are looking for a Frenchman for that role.”

This would also seem to rule out another rumoured target for PSG, Inter’s Brazilian star Douglas Maicon.
