Back in the starting lineup of Thomas Tuchel, after more than two months of sidelining due to a hip injury and only minutes of play on the last games, Edinson Cavani remained silent in front of Brest (1-2) and even took a slap. A few minutes after his 80th minute exit, he saw his rival Mauro Icardi enter and give the victory to his team with a sublime goal, already his ninth of the season. A complicated situation for "the Matador".
"Cavani must fight"
Close to his players, to seek the best of themselves in the image of Angel Di Maria, Thomas Tuchel do not let go of his striker and do not question the qualities of the Uruguayan, persuaded that he will still be important and sends him a strong message: "Edi lacks a bit of rhythm, it's not easy for him, but he gave everything, I think, he has to continue" explained the German technician aware that this center position plays essentially on trust "It's like that for the attackers, they are sometimes in an easier phase, they score, they score again, they are lucky to score, and Mauro has confidence at the moment." Edi is a little the opposite, it lacks a bit of rhythm, confidence, goals, it's always difficult for a number 9, it's a very sensitive position, but we have no choice but to accept, to fight and work hard " he added.
In any case good news, Edinson Cavani finally seems to rid of his physical glitches now place to the competition and with the "grinta" who lives the "Matador" no doubt that will manage to answer present and he will not let go.
