PSG’s star striker Edinson Cavani has revealed that the Uruguay national team has been suffering in terms of moral over the last few weeks after they were hit by an injury blow to star striker Luis Suarez. Cavani was expected to partner along with Suarez at the World Cup 2014, but the Liverpool striker has now suffered a setback that has put his participation in the tournament as a major doubt. Despite Cavani being paired along with Suarez, it has been the Liverpool striker who has been expected to get most of the goals.
Cavani will be assisting him, but it looks like the 27-year-old will have to shoulder the team on his own. Heavily linked with a move to Manchester United and Liverpool in the last few months, Cavani has been suffering from poor form for PSG. He has also been unhappy with the way the French club have been utilising him after his £ 60 million move from Napoli last summer. The player has largely been played out wide with preference being given to Zlatan Ibrahimovic to play in the centre. Cavani has said that team morale has hit a new low after learning that Suarez is doubtful for the opening match against Costa Rica.
"We're all a bit discouraged by what happened (with Suarez). Injuries are always ugly and more so at this time. I think we have to leave him alone now so he can have a good recovery with no anxiety on him. We wish he can join us as soon as possible," said Cavani. "When I heard (about Suarez) I said 'no, not now, please'. The truth is that I felt ill, it is something that nobody expected. He is our figurehead, our star," said Atletico Madrid defender Godin after learning about the injury to Suarez.
