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.
He told the club’s official website: "I scored a lot of goals last season, but that's normal, because we have a team that creates a lot of chances, and passes can come from everywhere. I often say that I'm not the best technically, but I work a lot to improve on that and to be in top shape to help the team win as many trophies as possible."
Paris Saint-Germain failed to continue their dominance in the Ligue 1 after they lost out to AS Monaco, who eventually won with an eight point margin. However, some of the disappointment was made up with the team lifting both the Coupe de France and the ,a href="http://www.goal.com/en-au/news/4016/main/2017/06/24/36593642/im-not-the-...">Coupe de la Ligue.
Cavani has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League over the years, but his recent contract extension until 2020 has put a close to the speculation for the moment. The 30-year-old nevertheless has plans of returning to Napoli at some stage in his career before calling quits altogether in his homeland. Cavani has amassed 130 goals for Paris Saint-Germain since his switch from Naples four years ago.
