Some parties feel uncomfortable with Manchester United’s decision to recruit Edinson Cavani last summer. The reason is, the Uruguay striker is quite old and last season he rarely got the opportunity to play at PSG.
However, some still believe in the quality that the former Napoli player can offer, including one former Chelsea player, Gus Poyet. He believes Cavani has surprises for the next few months.
So far, the 33-year-old striker has played only five games for Manchester United, but neither of them started as a starter.
Naturally, Solskjaer could not give Cavani the opportunity to start considering the player had not played regularly in the last few months.
However, Cavani, who got free, performed quite well in the match against Everton in the Premier League, he managed to score one goal at that time.
The score should have been a sign for coach Solskjaer to dare to field Cavani as a striker. Because of that, Poyet also believes that Cavani still has a lot of quality to offer and could become a mainstay for MU in the future.
“I think he will be a more important player for Manchester United than many people think. Just look at the last game against Everton. The score is balanced, he comes off the bench, one chance and a goal.”
“English football is perfect for Uruguay players because they have a lot of passion. Once they sign the contract, they immediately forget about it and focus on winning,” Poyet told the Daily Mail.
Furthermore, the figure who now works as an analysis of the Premier League considers that this is all just a matter of adaptation before Cavani finds his best performance with Manchester United.
“He ran a lot in his last game. Maybe he even made some dangerous breakthrough runs, but the ball didn’t get to him.”
“The more fit his body is, the more he understands MU’s game, the more he will play,” he concluded.
Whatever it is, it is clear that Manchester United must quickly improve their position in the standings. In the weekend, the Red Devils will face West Bromwich Albion.
