Aurier: Cavani is impressive

Paris Saint-Germain right-back Serge Aurier believes that the club’s leading scorer in 2016/17, Edinson Cavani, can continue to thrive with good service.

The Uruguay international has hit 23 goals in 22 appearances for the Parisians and appears to have stepped out of the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who departed for Manchester United.

Aurier takes the view that the 29-year-old is a key man in PSG's attack, and that he will continue to deliver with the right supply.

The Ivory Coast international, who is becoming a regular under coach Unai Emery, said, "Edi is impressive. He's capable of making something of our crosses that are sometimes bad.

"But we're there to give him the best possible balls, because he's the team's goalscorer. We joked together when he got the trophy to mark his 100 goals for the club. I asked him to cut it in two and give me half."

The French champions face Lorient in their final game of 2016 and currently trail leaders Nice by seven points.
