Despite their problems this season, Palermo striker Edison Cavani insists they can still qualify for the UEFA Cup.

The young Uruguayan said: "I always think positive and I want to aim for excellence. I've been like this since I was a kid, to compete for more ambitious goals.

"Many of my teammates talk about staying up because they have more experience than I and have been here the longest.

"But in any case, I am convinced of the potential of this team that I think is very strong and I think the Uefa Cup is a goal within our reach."
