Neymar, Di Maria, Cavani combination will cause lots of trouble – Alex

Former PSG defender Alex is afraid for defenders who will have to come up against the trio of Neymar, Di Maria and Cavani.

Neymar who recently signed for the Ligue 1 outfit will team up with fellow South-Americans – Di Maria and Cavani to form a trident strike force similar to the defunct ‘MSN’ of Barcelona

The 25-year-old left Barcelona in a world-record €222million deal last week, bringing an end to his alliance with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

PSG opened their 2017/18 campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win over newly promoted Amiens FC and will now travel to Guingamp on Sunday and Alex -who featured for the Parc des Princes side between 2012 and 2014- is of the opinion that an attack line consisting of Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Edinson Cavani will be as frightening as the ‘MSN’.

“We know there are other players in the squad fighting for a place, but I think at first they will play with those three up front,” he told Omnisport.

“I wouldn’t want to be a defender trying to stop a trio like that. They’re going to cause a lot of trouble. But it will be awesome for the people who like football and like to watch football.

“You see Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG … big teams, in decisive games, It’s going to be hard for the defenders, I don’t want to be in their situation.”
