When you think of the Paris Saint-Germain Football Club, you think of a high-quality organization for male and female footballers that delivers proven results, winning results, and an international brand that fans around the world can wear with pride. Forward Edinson Cavani, however, is disgracing the brand with his insipid finishing and inferior football IQ. All in all, Cavani is not playing the game properly.

Now the transfer window is going to close in a few days, and there is a chance that Cavani’s short-term future at PSG will be secured by Nasser Al-Khelaifi not having enough time or takers to get Cavani off the books. But, if that is the case, it would be a smart move to put him on the block heading into January. It should be a direct and final ultimatum to the Uruguayan international that this atrocious production is not up to the standards of who are supposed to be the best club in French football.
Granted, the loss came against Monaco, a UEFA Champions League participant. But, PSG have a domestic quadruple to defend. They don’t want to end the year with just the Trophee des Champions and the International Champions Cup among their only spoils. And we understand, yes, we’re only three weeks into the Ligue 1 season, but do you see who’s at the top right now? It’s En Avant de Guingamp! Guingamp, of all teams! I have to go to Wikipedia to look the location of that town of 7,235.

Look at this #NotTop10 reel of Cavani’s effort at FC Metz. You can’t get away with this at USL level. I know a number of defenders in MLS who can mark Cavani. I know a number of really good forwards in MLS who can do a better job handling balls, and getting the control down to find the net, than Cavani.
You can see why the fans at Le Parc des Princes jeered Cavani as he left the pitch. They had a point. It’s as if they knew they would be exposed by Monaco. And the cruel thing about this is that Saint-Etienne and Arsenal are next. PSG are going to head into next month on a losing note and with very little momentum.

Sure, Les Parisiens could use the return of Thiago Silva. Sure, Les Parisiens could use the return of the great…Marquinhos. Sure, Les Parisiens could use some #ParisEstMagique from Jese Rodriguez. But…it doesn’t matter if Edinson Cavani disgraces the PSG brand, the PSG first team, the metropolis of Paris and most importantly, himself, for not his position properly.
News flash, Edinson, you don’t have the sugar daddy of European football in Zlatan Ibrahimovic to save you. He’s gone, brother. He’s playing for the mighty Manchester United, a club that will be rolling heads…in the UEFA Europa League, unlike the Mighty PSG, who will be having a tough go at dispatching Basel and Razgrad, let alone the Arsenal of Woolwich under legendary boss Arsene Wenger.
Being told straight up, full frontal, that you have no future at the club you currently play for, especially when you are given the keys to the attack from a tough act to follow, is not good. It’s terrible news. It’s unacceptable news. Ask Cesc Fabregas, who is on his way out at Chelsea, a club who, under Antonio Conte, are playing surprisingly better football than Paris Saint-Germain despite not taking part in any European competition this year. If Napoli doesn’t want you, you might end up playing in MLS. I can tell you this: the LA Galaxy don’t need you. They already have issues regarding their finishing. Your arrival will only aggravate the issues here in the great city of Los Angeles.

So here’s the deal, Edinson. Start playing proper football NOW. ASAP. You may have won trophies at Paris Saint-Germain Football Club, but you won’t be playing much longer at Paris Saint-Germain Football Club if you don’t live up to the lofty set by…wait for it…Paris Saint-Germain Football Club. In closing, senor, this mess that happened is your responsibility to take. It’s your problem now.

The Parisians at Le Parc want you gone. You need to prove them wrong, because without expectations, there is no incentive whatsoever for performance or improvement. Fix your problem right now, Edinson Cavani, or your time at Le PSG…is up.
