Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has explained in detail what his goal celebration is all about.

The Uruguayan forward has established himself as a fan favorite following his arrival on a free transfer in the summer.

Cavani

has already scored five goals in 17 games for

Manchester United

.

The attacker played well in the 2-1 victory against

Fulham

and showed off his archer action after firing home the equalizer

After scoring a goal the Uruguayan drops down onto one knee and forms a bow and arrow with his arms, before 'firing' an arrow into the stands.

However, the former PSG star has now explained that the celebration has a deeper meaning relating to his one-year-old daughter India.

“It’s a bit of a long story and it’s kind of wrapped up in our country’s history, and the indigenous population, the Charrúas,”

Cavani told the United Review

.

“When my little daughter, India, was born, her name is just a small reference to our native Uruguayans, the Charrúas.

“So that arrow that I take out and then fire, is a goal celebration that sort of encapsulates all these things: a mix of my daughter’s name and the indigenous peoples of my country.

“It has a special meaning, but like you say, Eric reminded me of it, even though at the end of each celebration, I always make sure I take out the arrow and fire it.”
