Dani Alves hits back at Diego Forlan's criticism of Neymar and Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain right-back Dani Alves has reportedly hit back at Diego Forlan after he appeared to criticise the on-field dispute between Neymar and Edinson Cavani over a penalty kick.


The pair landed in a disagreement over who should take the penalty in the 2-0 win over Lyon, which Cavani eventually missed.

Following the game, Forlan came in the defence of his Uruguayan compatriot Cavani, who seemed to have been put at fault for the incident, he told Radio Sport 890: "What doesn't make any sense is what Alves does, he doesn't give the ball to Cavani and then gives it to Neymar as if he were his b----.Cavani deserves respect. He has been scoring goals for years, taking penalties. There has to be respect. Neymar would not have done that with [Lionel] Messi. He didn't want Cavani to take the penalty. He was like a little boy annoying him."

Edinson Cavani admits he has flaws in his Game

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has admitted that he still has to learn the technical side of his game despite enjoying his best season in his professional career last term. Cavani racked in 49 goals in 50 outings for Les Parisiens last season, but he was still criticised for missing key opportunities during the campaign.


The Uruguay international got his wish to lead the Paris Saint-Germain frontline last year after Zlatan Ibrahimovic chose to leave the club on a free transfer. Despite regularly finding the net over the course of the season, Cavani admits he is not the best technically, and he will seek to improve under Unai Emery next term

Edinson Cavani Admits Return to Napoli is a Possibility After 2020

Edinson Cavani has confirmed that he may return to Napoli at the end of his Paris St Germain contract.


The Uruguayan has always been linked with a move from the French club. It has been a consistent theme ever since he came to the club in a £ 60 million deal four years ago. Even though most of the initial transfer rumours were largely down to Cavani failing to secure a favourite central playing position, the Uruguayan has been the club’s first choice striker since Zlatan Ibrahimovic left in the summer. Cavani has not disappointed, as he has managed to score an amazing 33 goals in just 34 league matches.

Hard Work from Edinson Cavani Is Paying off, says David Trezeguet

Former French international David Trezeguet believes that Paris St Germain are being pushed to new heights by none other than Edinson Cavani.


The club managed a 4-0 rout of Barcelona, widely regarded as one of the best teams in the world, in the last 16 of the Champions League. Even though Angel di Maria scored two goals in the game, it was a result largely masterminded by the brilliant centre forward performance of Edinson Cavani. For long, Cavani sat in the shadows of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. There were even rumours about the player considering a move away from the French club as a result of being consistently played out of position despite having cost more than £ 60 million from Napoli.

CAVANI'S FORM GIVES PSG MORE CONFIDENCE

Unai Emery believes Edinson Cavani's match-winning double in Paris Saint-Germain's 2-0 defeat of Bordeaux will improve his team-mates' confidence in the Uruguay internal.


The Uruguayan broke the deadlock with a powerful header, then adding a second before the break with a beautiful flicked finish from Layvin Kurzawa's cross.

Cavani Continues Irresistible Form after a Brace against Bordeaux

Edinson Cavani finally looks to be enjoying his time out in the limelight after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.


The striker has been in impeccable form over the last couple of games and he took his tally to 8 goals for the campaign after another rout against Caen. The Uruguayan first showed signs of coming back to form in the Champions League match against Arsenal. A goal against the gunners was to be his second in three games. He has taken on the confidence provided by these two goals to the next level quite literally

Edinson Cavani may return to his former club Napoli

PSG striker Edinson Cavani has stated that he could one day return to his former club Napoli, with whom he shares a special relationship, but only if current president Aurelio De Laurentiis does not remain at the club.

Cavani fell out withDe Laurentiis before his massive £ 60 million move to Paris St Germain. The Uruguayan was linked with several other clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United, but he was able to make a move only to PSG since Napoli reportedly demanded a lot of money. At that time, PSG were the only club capable of paying such a huge figure for a 27-year-old striker.

CAVANI RUMOURS

The rumours surrounding Edinson Cavani does not seem to go away even after the end of the transfer window. He continues to be linked with moves to the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United in January.

Due to the injury troubles faced by Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the start of the season, Cavani has been getting more game time as the central striker. The Uruguayan has stated on several occasions that he is not ready to play out wide due to the presence of Ibrahimovic. His goal return has suffered as a result of playing as a winger.

Cavani In Rumors Of PSG Move

Edinson Cavani has done little to arrest the rumours that have been linking him with a move away from PSG in the summer after admitting that he cannot deny interest from a club like Manchester United should they make an offer in the summer. Cavani has been stating throughout the season that he has been unhappy with the club, but this has been his first season at the French capital after his £ 60 million move from Napoli last summer. Despite this mega money move, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the preferred choice upfront for manager Laurent Blanc.
