Cayzac: No syndrome
Paris Saint Germain chairman Alain Cayzac has rubbished claims the players have a complex about playing at Parc des Princes.
An indifferent start to the new Ligue 1 season has left PSG 13th in the table and without a win in their opening five home matches.
There have been suggestions that the team find it difficult to play at Parc des Princes, but Cayzac has dismissed such a notion.
"I think the comments about the team are very harsh and undeserved," Cayzac told L'Equipe.
"We lost a game (against Bordeaux), but we had a series of five matches without a defeat. We can't throw everything away.
"Against Bordeaux we endured a difficult night, against a very good team, but there is no syndrome at Parc des Princes.
"I can't believe the players are scared to play here. Parc des Princes is not cursed. All that is just rubbish.
"The reasons for the defeat are just technical and tactical. I trust Paul Le Guen to find the solution that will make us win the next game.
"Don't forget we endured a horrible last season. We suffered a lot and it has marked the minds and left traces.
"Anyway, I am convinced we will achieve a much better season. We are ambitious, even if we won't state we will be champions. I am confident."
