'Cavani is a great attacker' - Marquinhos says Man Utd striker helped him raise his game at PSG

Edinson Cavani is a "great attacker", according to Marquinhos, who has admitted that the Manchester United striker helped him raise his game at Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani spent seven years playing alongside defender Marquinhos at Paris Saint-Germain after they both joined the Ligue 1 giants in July 2013.

The Uruguayan left PSG at the end of the 2019-20 campaign as the club's all-time record goalscorer having found the net 200 times.
