Cavani and Blanc involved in furious touchline argument

The Uruguay striker reacted angrily to being substituted against Marseille and has admitted he would like to play in his natural position more often

Edinson Cavani was involved in a furious touchline argument with coach Laurent Blanc on Sunday after he was substituted in his side's 3-2 Ligue 1 win over Marseille.

The Uruguayan was replaced by Ezequiel Lavezzi after 59 minutes, and had a heated exchange with his boss as he walked towards the bench.

It has been claimed in the French press that Cavani has a poor rapport with both his coach and his fellow forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the ex-Napoli man said to be unhappy at being played on the wing in order to accomodate the Swede.

Cavani has admitted his frustration at being placed out wide by Blanc.

"I do not know where this rumour of a bad relationship with Ibrahimovic comes from," Cavani told Canal Plus.

"We are footballers who play for the same club and we respect one another. One cannot be friends with everyone. 

"The only concern that I have ever spoken about is that I was recruited to play as a striker with Ibrahimovic and it has not always been the case. 

"There is a long series of games where I have not scored in Ligue 1 but that can happen. In France, people judge me as a lone striker, but I do not play in that position.

"But aside from that, everything else is perfect here."

However, Cavani's unhappiness at being played out of position has resulted in him being consistently linked with a move away from PSG.

The 28-year-old, who is under contract until 2018, expects to remain in the French capital - but refused to completely rule out a future transfer.

"Currently, I am just thinking about finishing the season in Paris and also respecting my contract," he added. 

"My attention is only focused on training with the club that pays me. But anything can happen in football."
