Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani was ecstatic after his strike in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Montpellier took him past Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club’s record goalscorer.
Cavani converted Adrien Rabiot’s cross in the 11th minute – his 157th strike for the Ligue 1 giants – to set a new benchmark.
Cavani was presented with a trophy after the game in front of a giant and lit-up ‘157’ by president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
