Edinson Cavani ‘No Longer At Ease’ At PSG

Edinson Cavani At PSG

Thomas Tuchel admits Edinson Cavani is struggling to come to terms with his lack of minutes at PSG since returning from injury.

The 32-year-old suffered a hip injury at the start of the season which has restricted him to just one appearance since the end of August.

Though he returned to the substitutes' bench for the 4-0 win over Marseille at the weekend, the PSG boss admits he is ‘not completely happy'.

‘’He was injured for many weeks', he told a press conference ahead of Friday night's trip to Dijon.

‘’He wants to help us and it is necessary to see him play.

‘’It's absolutely normal and he has to fight to find the rhythm and have his place on the team. We have to think about the team in general.

‘’Edinson Cavani is our scorer, the biggest of the club, but he still thinks of the collective. It's a difficult phase when the team played well without him.

‘’Now his role has changed a bit. He is super-professional, he is in a good state of mind, he trains with a lot of quality.’'
