Martial should be bench for Cavani - Parker

Tue 29 December 2020 | 15:55

Cavani has performed well this season and has recorded good performances.

Former

Manchester United

player Paul Parker believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should bench Anthony Martial and replace him with

Edinson Cavani

.

The 2019-2020 season was Martial's best season at Manchester United, and he scored a record 20 goals for the first time since joining the club from Monaco in 2015. The 25-year-old striker has not been able to stay in form this season, scoring just four goals in 16 games. However, Cavani played three games less than him, and he has often played as a substitute. Now Parker has praised the Uruguayan striker, claiming he is the best United striker after Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“I’m sceptical about some of the players he [Solskjaer] is leaving on the touchline,”

Parker told talksport.

“It does worry me that you’re leaving good players on the touchline who you need to get in, get playing consistently and get the best from them.

“Edinson Cavani is one of them. The one thing United have been lacking for quite a few years now is a consistent centre-forward, somebody who knows how to play in that position with their runs, holding up the ball, playing little one-twos and movement in behind.

“United haven’t had that; the only one they’ve had of any note since Sir Alex retired was Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“All Ole is trying to do at the moment is get some consistency in their game, and if players like Cavani – with the levels they have played at – are playing then maybe they will.”
