Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has been full of praise for new Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani, ahead of the Champions League clash between the two sides.
The 33-year-old’s contract expired in June and thus sealed a move to PSG as a free agent, but he made his mark with the French giants and left as their all-time top goalscorer with 200 goals in 301 games.
Tuchel has hailed Cavani and has revealed some of the things that made him the top striker that he is.
“Very polite, almost a bit shy,” Tuchel said of Cavani.
“Hard, hard worker, he will be there in every training [session] first minute until last minute. Every game from first second until last second. You can totally rely on him.
“He’s living for goals, he’s living for scoring. When he has the confidence he’s one of the [best] No.9s in world football.
“From Wednesday on he can start to convince all of you, but tomorrow, it’s not necessary to prove me right.”
