thumbnail Hello,

The Uruguayan was lauded by teammates after scoring twice in Friday's 4-0 rout of Lorient but has urged his side to maintain winning ways.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani admits he was "very happy" with his two goals against Lorient but has warned his side to continue working hard to sustain its strong run.

The Uruguayan took his tally to six in just four games with a double in Friday's rout as PSG moved three points clear of Monaco at the top of Ligue 1.

The 26-year-old has urged his teammates to keep up its current form.

"Tonight was a great night. To score twice made me very happy," he was quoted as saying by L'Equipe. "We must keep going. It's good, but we must continue to work hard."

PSG keeper Salvatore Sirigu was delighted to see Cavani continue his impressive scoring streak on Friday but was quick to pay tribute to the forward's hard work off the ball.

"I'm happy for him. He's an incredible signing. He is a top player," the Italian said. "He's a special player because he scores a lot but also because he helps the team. This is almost more important."

PSG currently sits top of Ligue 1 with 28 points from 12 games, three clear of Monaco, which faces Lille on Sunday.
