Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has heaped praise on himself, saying that he feels he is a “the ultimate finisher”.
The Uruguay international is topping the Ligue 1 scoring charts with 18 goals in the same number of matches.
However, the PSG star has failed to have the same leadership impact as Zlatan Ibrahimovic had on the team till last season.
Cavani has also finished some very easy chances, with critics questioning his finishing ability.
However, Cavani claims that he knows how clinical he can be and says he is mixture of traditional and modern finisher.
“My style of game is a bit of a mix between a modern player and a traditional striker, more aggressive. The real ultimate finisher,” Edinson Cavani said.
“Scoring a goal feels a bit like a liberating act. It is a mix of sensations that only strikers can feel in their own guts. We work for that, to score. It is like a commitment, an obligation we take with ourselves.”
“When you reach the moment to score it is like liberating different emotions such as joy, happiness and also satisfaction. You know you are doing what your team needs, [scoring] goals. For all of this I feel happy and special in a way.”
“To become a striker you need dedication, focus and professionalism. When they pass you the ball inside the area, the first thing you think of is to score. To find the best way to finish.”
“When you find yourself in between two opposing defenders, the first thing that comes to mind is the movement that gives you the chance and to complete the action before they stop you.”
