Luis Enrique, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, has advised the club not to become obsessed with winning the Champions League title.
The Ligue 1 champions kick up their European campaign against Dortmund at Parc des Princes.
“When a club is obsessed with something, it is never a good sign. You have to have ambition but obsession doesn’t work, that’s the same in all walks of life.
“We want to play, to give our supporters a lot of joy, but there is no obsession,” Luis Enrique said in a pre-match press conference.
PSG have become synonymous with failure in the Champions League in recent years, suffering a series of embarrassing exits despite high expectations. But with Lionel Messi and Neymar both departing this summer, Luis Enrique’s squad looks radically different from those who routinely crashed out of the competition.
