Cavani is at risk of FA investigation for a potential racism post

Mon 30 November 2020 | 10:36

The Man Utd’s match-winner has deleted the post but still could be punished by the authorities

Manchester United

came back from a two-goal defeat to win 3-2 with two goals scored by

Cavani

who came off the bench, in their Sunday match against

Southampton

.

The Uruguay international responded to some of the positive messages he received from fans and responded to one message with a notorious

N-word

.

The

FA

and United have not commented on the issue yet, but Cavani’s Uruguay international team-mate,

Luis Suarez

was punished with a 10-match ban for using the same word in 2014.

 

The Man United Coach,

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

, has been impressed by Cavani’s movement and his contribution in Sunday's game.

“He is one of the best because of his experience and qualities, that movement,"

Solskjaer said.

"He is one of the best movers you can see. He can peel off the shoulder, he can get in front of you, he can pin you.

"He wants to be in between the two posts, which I love. I love a centre-forward who gets in there. It might hurt sometimes but, when you’re there and you get the ball there, you've gambled and the ball’s been delivered, it's a goal. Two goals!”

 

United captain

Harry Maguire

hailed him as an example for other strikers.

"He has been without a club for a few months so he is coming in and catching up. He is a great professional, he is great to have around the place, he is great in the dressing room and I think you saw today what he brings to the club,"

he said.

"His movement when the ball is wide is to a level that not many strikers can reach. He is always on the move, always getting across people and that’s why he has always scored goals. So if there are any strikers out here wanting to learn and watch, I am sure they are studying his movement and what he has done in his career."
