Pastore hopes Ancelotti stays

Javier Pastore would be "sad" should coach Carlo Ancelotti quit Paris Saint-Germain after what the Argentine international called "a very positive year" for the French club.

Ancelotti, 53, could see PSG wrap up the Ligue 1 title with victory at home to Valenciennes on Sunday, but though his contract has been automatically extended to the end of next season, the Italian is widely expected to announce a summer departure for Real Madrid.

Ancelotti has said he would find it hard to pass up the chance of managing Real Madrid having turned down the opportunity once before.

"I would be sad if he leaves. I've had a very good relationship with him in the 18 months that we've worked together. But those are the sorts of things that happen in football. You have to be ready for it," Pastore told a press conference on Friday. "I would like him to stay, he's done great things for the club. But it's up to everyone to make their own decisions."

PSG must only better OM's result against Bastia to clinch their first French crown since 1994. Even if both clubs win, PSG's vastly superior goal difference means they would be champions all but mathematically.

"We can wrap up the title on Sunday, which would be very important for us, and for me in particular, as it'll be my first. We've had a very positive year in both the league and the Champions League. It was difficult at the start, but it's ended positively," Pastore, who insisted he would be on his PlayStation rather than in front of the TV for Marseille's game, said. "The title is in our hands. If we win, Marseille's result changes nothing. So we have to focus on ourselves."
