PSG cut costs by landing late in Ukraine

PARIS - Paris St Germain landed in Ukraine for their UEFA Cup quarter-final return leg against Dynamo Kiev on Wednesday, just one day before the match, partly to keep costs down, coach Paul Le Guen said.

"First, there are sports reasons. I don't like to arrive three or four days before the game," Le Guen was quoted as saying by French sports daily L'Equipe on Thursday.

"But there are also economic considerations, a full board accommodation costs 450 euro per player. We also think about that, it's obvious."

PSG, who drew 0-0 at home in the first leg last week, play Ukrainian league leaders Dynamo Kiev on Thursday.
