Cavani: Paris Saint-Germain can conquer Europe

The Uruguay star has delivered a warning to the rest of the continent and revealed his thoughts on playing alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Edinson Cavani says Paris Saint-Germain are capable of upsetting the odds and winning the Champions League this season.

The Ligue 1 champions have been drawn against Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen in the last-16 and Cavani insists that they are capable of going all the way in the competition.

"Yes, I really think that the PSG can win the Champions League," the Uruguay international told French newspaper Le Figaro.

The striker moved to les Parisiens in a €64 million deal from Napoli over the summer and has since forged a partnership with Zlatan Ibrahimovic - a player he was quick to praise for his unique style.

He explained: "I feel good next to Zlatan . He is a player of great class,

"He scares opponents because he can score at any moment. He has his own way of playing; it may seem impolite and rude, but he is a very important player for the team."

The 26-year-old has scored 16 goals in 22 games in all competitions so far this season and believes his decision to move to France has made him a more complete player.

"I'm very good in Paris. I had a rather difficult adjustment, but all the people in France have treated me great and this has helped me,

"Today I feel happy and  want to grow more as a person and player. I work 100 per cent to achieve my goals with PSG."
