'I'm not the best technically' - Cavani opens up about his flaws

PSG forward Edinson Cavani has admitted that he is "not the best technically", but that he is trying to improve that area of his game.

The Uruguay international scored 49 goals in 50 games in all competitions for the Ligue 1 side last season and is happy with his return in front of goal. However, he does feel that there is one area that lets him down, and that he is working on it to help Unai Emery's side be more competitive.

"I scored a lot of goals last season, but that's normal, because we have a team that creates a lot of chances, and passes can come from everywhere," Cavani told the club's official website. 

"I often say that I'm not the best technically, but I work a lot to improve on that and to be in top shape to help the team win as many trophies as possible."

PSG missed out on the Ligue 1 title to Monaco, finishing eight points off top spot, but somewhat made up for that disappointment by lifting both the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue.

Cavani was on target in the Coupe de la Ligue final, scoring twice as PSG defeated Monaco 4-1. He was also delighted to help Les Parisiens overcome Angers in the Coupe de France final, lifting the trophy on its 100th anniversary.

"I honestly don't remember all my goals, but I think my favourite this season is the first I scored against Monaco in the Coupe de la Ligue final," the 30-year-old said. 

"Verratti's pass was magnificent and I caught it sweetly on the volley. More than that, it's a goal that helped us pull away in a great game and took us a bit closer to the trophy.

"The Coupe de France is a special competition. It's always very difficult to reach the final, because we play against teams that don't give up on anything and who want to create a shock, sometimes in difficult playing conditions. We won the 100th anniversary edition, which made it a very special moment for us all."
