Cavani given bizarre prize for PSG achievement


HIGHLIGHTS + REPORT: Paris Saint-Germain v Montpellier

You would expect Paris Saint-Germain, a hugely wealthy club located in the heart of the fashion world, to have something classy up its sleeve for the big occasions.

But there was something decidedly low-key about the commemorative gift received by Edinson Cavani after he became PSG's record goalscorer on Sunday (AEDT).

The Uruguay striker took his PSG tally to 157 goals with an early strike in the 4-0 Ligue 1 win over Montpellier, overtaking Zlatan Ibrahimovic's previous benchmark.

Post-match, was it a magnum of champagne, a commemorative shirt or a big bonus cheque that was presented to Cavani?


Instead, he received a 2D, scaled down version of himself.
