Cavani: Falcao is "one of the best"

Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani has praised Ligue 1 rival Radamel Falcao, calling the Monaco striker "a player with a lot of class" and lauding the Colombian's eye-catching industry.

Big-name signings like Joao Moutinho and Radamel Falcao may take time to jell at Monaco.
Radamel Falcao swapped Atletico Madrid for Monaco this summer.

• Johnson: Major test

Purchased for a Ligue 1 record €64 million, Uruguayan international Cavani, 26, eclipsed the reported €60 million Monaco paid for Falcao, 27. However, four games into the French top-flight season, it is the latter who heads his fellow South American with three goals to Cavani's two.

The pair are likely, along with Cavani's PSG team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic, to contest the title of Ligue 1's leading scorer this season, and the former Napoli striker told AFP he is fully aware of the quality of the threat posed by Falcao.

"I think Falcao is one of the best strikers because of the way he plays, more than simply being a player with a lot of class, to define a game, a style of play," he said. "He's proven that he's a player who works hard, he's very strong both tactically and technically."

Currently on international duty with their respective countries, the pair will get a first opportunity to go toe-to-toe on the pitch in France when their two clubs meet at the Parc des Princes on September 22.
