Cavani accepts blame for PSG’s Arsenal draw
PSG forward Edinson Cavani, has taken full responsibility for PSG’s failure to secure a win against Arsenal, as they started off their Champions League campaign at home.
Though Cavani was responsible for securing an early goal for the Ligue 1 champions, just a minute into the match, he missed out on several chances, which will have put PSG ahead and sealed a win for the French champions.
The Uruguayan striker, has stepped to claim full responsibility, as he accepts that the team was wasteful with their chances.
“We played a great game. We played better than in the previous game in the league [a 1-1 draw against Saint-Etienne],” he said.
“There are many positive things [to take from the game]. But in the end, we pay dearly for our lack of consistency in front of the goal.
“In this competition you have to win a lot of points. It was the first game and we must continue to play like we showed.
“As I said before, I think we played a great game but we have to be better in front of goal. I take responsibility for it because I had the clearest opportunities.
“But this is football, sometimes the ball goes in, sometimes it doesn’t. We just have to continue because we showed a lot of positive things.”
