Man Utd striker Cavani: Prem or Ligue 1? Football is football

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani likes to see football kept simple.

Cavani insists there's little difference between the Premier League and what he experienced in France with PSG.

He said, "Let's not forget that one of the last finalists in the Champions League was a French team. So for me it's football no matter where you play, who you play against.

"For me, it's a competition, with different characteristics. I don't see things in England that are better than in France, or in Portugal. No, because you can face a team from Portugal and lose. Then you can play against an English team and win.

"Football is football, even if it has become a very big business today."
