Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has praised Jeremy Menez and Kevin Gameiro after their performances in the 2-1 win over Nancy.

Benjamin Moukandjo silenced Parc des Princes as he handed the visitors a shock lead on Saturday, but an inspired brace from Zlatan Ibrahimovic put the home side back in charge.

Ancelotti was quick to credit the win to his substitutes’ contributions as PSG moved five points clear atop Ligue 1.

“The first period was similar to those (defeats) against Reims and Sochaux, as we had problems in terms of intensity and motivation,” the 53-year-old told InfoSport.

“However, the second half reaction was good. Menez and Gameiro brought intensity. Menez was not ready to play 90 minutes, so I saved him for the second half.

“Gameiro was useful when he came on too, as he always is.

“We did not play good football in this game, but it was important to win. Now we have more time to prepare for our next game (against Saint-Etienne).”

Brazilian star Lucas Moura was forced off before the hour mark and Ancelotti is concerned about the injury.

“He must pass tests. Am I worried? Naturally,” the Italian said.

“I hope he will recover soon, but I cannot say as I have not yet spoken to the doctor.”
