Paris: Paris St Germain boss Laurent Blanc has hit back at Jose Mourinho's taunt that Ligue 1 is a cakewalk for the Parisiens by pointing at the Portuguese's history with Real Madrid.
Mourinho, who won one Primera Division title in three seasons in Spain in a Barcelona-led duopoly, had suggested winning Ligue 1 is easy, stoking the fires ahead of his Chelsea side's Champions League quarter-final first leg at Parc des Princes tonight.
"Maybe if we're talking about the league and I'm sure that Jose Mourinho knows the French league very well," Blanc said.
"There are two really big clubs in Ligue 1 (PSG and Monaco), but if I remember correctly, I think it was the same for him in Spain, with Barcelona and Madrid.
"The only answer we want to give is to show a great performance tomorrow and we'd like to show that Ligue 1 has some very good teams and some very good players."
