    Blanc: PSG desperate to win the Champions League
    After claiming a second successive domestic treble on Saturday, the former Bordeaux and France manager insists his charges must now go on to win honours in Europe
    Laurent Blanc says Paris Saint-Germain must kick on in their quest to win the Champions League after outlining their domestic dominance once again.
    PSG claimed a second successive treble thanks to Saturday's 4-2 win against Marseille in the Coupe de France final.
    Departing striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired the result with a double as PSG maintained their stranglehold on French football.
    However, Blanc was not completely content post-match, quickly turning his attention to European success following four consecutive quarter-final exits from the Champions League.
    "I've always been very proud, since my appointment at PSG. Very proud to lead the players But that is not enough. The communication was very clear: we want to win the Champions League," Blanc said.
    "We did not reach our goal [In Europe]. But it is difficult. Competition is fierce.
    "We must try to do better with other players, perhaps by putting more emphasis on the collective and the team. We will not leave a project to renew 100 per cent of the team.
