Paul Le Guen wants Paris Saint Germain's focus to swiftly turn to domestic matters after the impressive Uefa Cup win over AEK Athens.
Goals from Sammy Traore and Bernard Mendy saw a youthful PSG side secure a 2-0 first leg win in Greece.
Le Guen was delighted with the performance in the last 32 encounter, but wants the Ligue 1 strugglers to switch their attention to Saturday's game at Nancy.
"We have been equal to the situation against a very good team that has defeated Milan and Lille in the Champions League," said Le Guen.
"We did what was needed with courage and self-denial. Each time we were able to attack, we did it.
"We seized each opportunity to hurt them. We scored two goals, but we could have scored even more. We deserved our win.
"Le Championnat remains very, very important to us. I am happy for Bernard Mendy, but as with the other players, he has to get focused again very quickly for Saturday's match."
Mamadou Sakho made his PSG debut in the game and Le Guen offered words of encouragement to the 17-year-old.
He added: "About youngster Mamadou Sakho, he had some difficulties at the beginning, but then it was better and better.
"It all comes a little quickly for him, but I needed to see him play."
