Video: Edinson Cavani Becomes a Goalie in Training.. and He’s Awful

Edinson Cavani should definitely stick to scoring goals rather than saving them.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker has forged a pretty impressive career for himself by hitting the net on a consistent basis.

He’s scored 25 or more goals in every one of his last six seasons and is on course to beat that number again after hitting 14 in 12 appearances so far this term.

With a goal record like that, we’d always recommend Cavani sticks to what he’s good at.

But we’d say it was career suicide if he decided to pack it all in and become a goalkeeper – if this showing in PSG training is anything to go by.

The Uruguayan donned the gloves this week, but struggled to impress on a crossing and finishing drill with his team-mates:

Back to scoring the goals for Cavani.

He’ll get his first chance to do that next when PSG take on Rennes in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

After 11 games of the season, Unai Emery’s side are sitting third, with 23 points – six behind league leaders Nice.
