LONDON (AP) – Despite an offseason of heavy spending, Paris Saint-Germain is still a work in progress a week before its French League opener against Lorient.
The pressure on coach Antoine Kombouare to deliver will still be unrelenting after the arrival of new players worth more than $100 million in the two months since a member of Qatar's royal family took over the club.
PSG coach Antoine Kombouare said Sunday through a translator that ''the players will be severely tested every week, everyone will want to beat Paris.''
Kombouare, however, cautioned that success ''won't happen in a day'' after his preseason preparations ended with a 3-0 victory over Boca Juniors.
The goals came from Jean-Eudes Maurice, Guillaume Hoarau and captain Marcos Ceara.
