Paris Saint-Germain's Edinson Cavani unfazed by criticism this season

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani accepts "criticism is part of football" and is satisfied with his recent performances after a shaky start to the season.

Cavani, 29, began the campaign slowly after picking up an injury but has since scored 19 goals in as many appearances across all competitions for club and country.

The Uruguay international has still found himself criticised by some, though, but he told beIN SPORTS that he accepts it is part of the game and something he has to deal with.

"The only people I have to answer to are my teammates and the coach [Unai Emery], who has faith in me," he said. "I sleep well, because I know I give everything, sometimes even more.

"Criticism is part of football, of cinema, of everything. Work always ends up paying off, and if there are critics, there are also those who love PSG, who love Cavani, and that gives me the strength to continue."

Since the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic over the summer, questions have been raised as to whether PSG can accomplish their aims -- notably being successful in the Champions League.

Cavani, who L'Equipe claims is in talks to extend his contract at the Parc des Princes past 2018, has seen a lot of progress in the French capital since his 2013 arrival and hopes to be a part of future successes.

"We have accomplished many of our objectives and won lots of titles over the past four or five years and that is very good for PSG," Cavani said. "However, there are other very important objectives left to achieve.

"I believe the club can continue to progress and wants to move forward and I hope to be a part of this progression. I will do my best to continue to better myself and produce great results."

Despite the changes made this summer, including the arrival of Emery, Cavani does not believe PSG are a weaker team.

"There has been a change of coach, technical staff and the players," Cavani said. "We all need to adapt to these changes and that is what we are doing. At the end of the season, we will be able to review everything and see whether we met our objectives or not."
