Paris St Germain manager Laurent Blanc feels that there is no reason why striker Edinson Cavani cannot coexist with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Both these players have huge egos but it is the former who has lost out a place as the striker.
Ibrahimovic continues to be the main forward at the French club despite his age, which is approaching 35. Cavani, meanwhile, is at the best period of his career, but manager Laurent Blanc has persisted with utilising the forward in a wide position. Cavani has been subjected to several transfer rumours as a result of this unhappiness, but a move is yet to materialise.
However, there are finally signs that who are starting to get along well with each other. Ibrahimovic and Cavani formed a great partnership in the recent win over Saint Etienne. They have taken their tally for the campaign to seven with goals in this game. Summer signing Angel di Maria may not have scored in this match, but he was at the centre of everything good created by the French outfit. PSG are now odds on favourite to win the league title by a comfortable margin after they opened a four-point advantage even at this early stage. The big challenge for PSG will come in the European competitions.
“Everybody has now seen that our attackers are complementary when they have the desire to play together.They have different characteristics and qualities, but what matters most is their presence on the pitch, regardless of their statistics. They did very well.Di Maria put in a great performance in the second half as well.We have some great players and he is one of them. We have to be patient with him,” said Blanc. PSG will have to quickly forget this impressive performance and focus on beating Real Madrid in the Champions League.
