Edinson Cavani says that he is not troubled by the criticism affecting Paris St Germain at the moment because he knows that criticism is part and parcel of football.
The Uruguayan striker has been in excellent form for the French outfit and it could not have come at a much better time. After the appointment of Unai Emery in the summer, the club has been struggling to get the same level of consistency in the league. Under the regime of Laurent Blanc, Paris St Germain were almost undefeatable in the domestic competitions.
The only reason for the club deciding for a change in management is the lack of performances when it came to European competitions.Emery has been a multiple Europa League winner over the last five years, and his presence has certainly led to an improvement in the club’s European form.
Despite in a tough group containing the likes of Arsenal and FC Basel, Paris St Germain have managed to take 10 points from the four games. The only blemish in Europe this season came through a tough draw with Arsenal. Even then, PSG remain second in the table and finishing top would be the main priority.
Apart from doing well in the French league, Cavani is also the second-best scorer in the Champions League this season."The only people I have to answer to are my teammates and the coach [Unai Emery], who has faith in me.I sleep well, because I know I give everything, sometimes even more.Criticism is part of football, of cinema, of everything. Work always ends up paying off, and if there are critics, there are also those who love PSG, who love Cavani, and that gives me the strength to continue," said Cavani, who has become the club’s first choice striker after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
