Zlatan debut impresses Ancelotti

Paris St Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti labelled Zlatan Ibrahimovic "fantastic" after the Swedish striker scored a brace on his competitive debut for the club against Lorient.

PSG are overwhelming favourites for the Ligue 1 title this season having spent around €150 million on bringing a host of world class players to the club.

Ibrahimovic was Les Parisiens' marquee signing, joining the likes of Thiago Silva and Ezequiel Lavezzi at the Parc des Princes, and he immediately showed his worth on his Ligue 1 debut - scoring a second-half double to rescue a point in the opening game of the season.

An own goal from Maxwell and a Jeremie Aliadiere strike had put the visitors in control before the 30-year-old hit back, netting a last-gasp penalty to scure a 2-2 draw.

Reflecting on PSG's performance, Ancelotti praised his side's attacking endeavours but acknowledged their defensive display was nowhere near good enough.

"We did not start the game well. We were not well balanced in the first period and the match then became difficult,'' he said. "Still, we played good football, not with a lot of speed of course, but we had many opportunities to score.

"We have many new players and we must work. Defensively, we need to improve for a better balance. In the second half, I saw a Paris team with character. Ibrahimovic was fantastic, he helped the team.

"This match is a good experience for everyone. We work to build a competitive team. I'm not worried by this draw. The first match is always strange, we have improved in all areas. All was not perfect, but that's normal.''
