Manchester United legend, Ryan Giggs, has told his former side they may need to tweak their current style of play if they wish to get the best out of Edinson Cavani.
The Uruguayan made his debut against Chelsea, and looked sharp, as he came close to scoring with his first shot.
Giggs believes the 33 year old could be a success at old Trafford, but has warned that they may need to borrow a leaf from how Sir Alex Ferguson used Robin van Persie, in order to get the best out of him.
“I think they’re going to have to watch his movement,” said Giggs.
“When Robin van Persie came to the club we weren’t finding him quickly enough because his movement was so good.
“But early, you had to play the ball quickly [to Van Persie]. I think Cavani may be in that bracket.
“His movement is good, you mention about his offsides, you have to play the ball quickly otherwise he will be offside. But you’ve seen a little clip of the quality he [Cavani] can possess.”
When Van Persie arrived Old Trafford, he didn’t instantly become a success, but Sir Alex warned he was going to bench some of his best midfielders— including Giggs and Paul Scholes unless they improved to work with the Dutchman’s, and it paid off.
