Mon 28 December 2020 | 14:14

The Red Devils coach believes the 33-year-old has more to his abilities as he promised to give the striker more chances as a starter.

According to

Manchester United

manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Red Devils striker,

Edinson Cavani

, could be on the verge of receiving another year extension after impressing with his abilities at Old Trafford. The 33-year-old, who signed a one year contract with the option of another 12-month deal, could be staying for a longer while, claimed Solskjaer.

“At the moment it looks like he has a few years left in him so I wouldn’t say anything else,”



“He has made a great impact when he has come here. Let’s focus on improving everyone but he has a few years left in him.”

Though Solskjaer has only granted Cavani three games as a starter, he explained his decision, saying:  

“He is definitely a starter. You don’t classify a player of that quality as anything else. We have plenty of starters, more than 11. That is the thing when you are at Man United.”

“You should believe and trust in yourself. I trust him. We have good competition for places. He will probably start more games than he will not start.”

“When you think of the history of his career and the experience he has had, his personality from the chat I had with him and when I watched him before, it wasn’t in doubt that he could handle the No 7 shirt.”

"He is so meticulous and professional, his habits and everything about him, shows why he has had the career he has. Even at the age he is now he is one of the fittest players we have got.”

“It is good for the players to know we trust them to play in big games,”

Solskjaer added about using 20 players in their recent two games.

“They are here for a reason. They are here to contribute and over this period, they will all have to do that this season because it is going to be relentless. I hope that will stand us in good stead, yes.”
