Cavani Complains About PSG Role

  • ESPN FC, Tuesday, April 1, 2014 1:59 PM

In an interview with L’Equipe, Edinson Cavani admitted he is unhappy being played out of position at Paris Saint-Germain and that he remains interested in the English Premier League. The Uruguay international, who was the top scorer in Serie A for the past two seasons while playing at Napoli, has largely been used as a winger at PSG this season, thanks in large part to the world-class form of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is the club's automatic first-choice striker.

During the interview, Cavani revealed: "I have to give the best, regardless of the position. But no, it is not always easy. I'm good in Paris, but there are some things that I'll have to talk to the club about. Certain things should be done differently. Today I defend a lot, I have another idea of what my role in the team should be.”

He added: "As an attacker I am used to finishing attacks and scoring and today I must perform other tasks. No, it is not easy, it's true. I do not want to talk about sacrifice, because I am happy putting the effort in. But today I hold a more defensive role than before. I am more like a defender and it is more difficult because, when I arrived, I had other ideas."

Cavani, a Manchester United and Chelsea target before PSG snapped him up for a reported 55 million pounds ($91 million) last summer, also said, “I like it” when asked about the English Premier League.
