Mamadou Sakho has been quick to play down talk that Paris St Germain are realistic title challengers this season.
The capital giants have enjoyed a productive start to the campaign and currently sit fourth in the Ligue 1 standings.
Just two points separate them from surprise leaders Brest, suggesting this could be the year that they end their long wait for a top flight title.
It has been 16 years since PSG last took the crown, with four runners-up finishes as close as they have come.
Their fine form at present has seen many tip them as contenders to lift the trophy in 2010/11, but Sakho insists it is far too early to speculate on such things.
"The national title? Maybe people think we can do it," said the 20-year-old.
"But we are not thinking about it at the moment.
"We are a lot stronger mentally than we were last season, which has made a big difference.
"That is good and we just have to make sure that we continue doing what we are doing."
