Emery praise for ‘extraordinary’ Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery has reserved special praise for the prolific performances of Edinson Cavani after the striker hit 35 Ligue 1 goals this season.

Despite the Parisians missing out on the league title to Monaco, Emery believes that the 30-year-old's displays are worthy of recognition.

He told the club's official website, "When I arrived in Paris, my aim was to give Edinson confidence. We have worked hard, him above all, to have this extraordinary season.

"But the most important thing, as he himself says, is the team. But of course he's had a great season. He's contributed a lot to the team by scoring a lot. He's a player who has a hunger for victory, he always wants to improve and who never gives up."

In all competitions the Uruguay hitman has managed 49 goals which puts him ahead of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo although he trails Barcelona's Lionel Messi by two strikes.
