PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi believes Edison Cavani’s four-goal haul against Caen indicates he has his mojo back.
The Uruguayan striker has come under fire for struggling to replace Ibrahimovic in the centre forward role, a position he yearned for.
However, he scored against Arsenal and also scored four goals in the first half against Caen.
And his displays in front of goal have provided Matuidi with evidence that his team-mate is starting to emerge from the Swede’s shadow.
“He already scored against Arsenal and [against Caen] he got four goals so we are really pleased for him. I hope he will keep moving forward,” the midfielder told reporters.
“We know that Edi is a guy who needs confidence. We know that. But he’s a very talented player. He scores a lot of goals every season.
“We trust him completely. I know that he will score a lot of goals this year.”
Close-season recruit Grzegorz Krychowiak believes Caen walked into a PSG backlash following their frustrating draw against the Gunners at the Parc des Princes.
The Poland midfielder said: “I think we’ve been a little disappointed because I think we could have won against Arsenal. We had several chances to. Unfortunately we lacked a bit of efficiency.
“The win against Caen is good for what lies ahead. We will keep going.”
