Former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, who has joined Spanish club Valencia this summer, made a sensational revelation that he required a 'therapy' after Barcelona pulled off historic remontada in the UEFA Champions League 2017.
The French capital-based club registered a 4-0 win over the LaLiga giants, Barcelona in the first leg of the Round of 16 at the Parc des Princes. However, a stunning performance from Brazilian star Neymar Jr. helped the Catalan giants to pull off sensational comeback in the second leg as the Blaugranas found the back of the net six times at the Camp Nou.
Neymar scored twice with the help of a freekick and assisted Sergi Roberto for his infamous 90+5' goal that helped Barcelona to record a 6-5 aggregate win over PSG.
Recently, Uruguayan star Edinson Cavani told Relevo that he had 'anxiety symptoms ' and was 'scared of falling asleep' after the loss against Barcelona in 2017. Cavani said, " I went to therapy after Barça’s comeback against PSG. Barça’s comeback at PSG affected me so much. It’s only football, but it affects you as a person."
He added, "After that, I had anxiety symptoms, cold sweats, and I would get dizzy before sleeping and I was scared of falling asleep. I would ask myself: Am I sick in the head?”
After spending three more years with PSG, Cavani joined Premier League giants Manchester United in 2020 and signed for Valencia after playing two seasons in England. Cavani is set to face Barcelona later this month in La Liga.
