United legend slams Cavani’s nonchalance in the loss to Arsenal

Former Manchester United midfielder, Roy Keane, has ripped into Edinson Cavani, for failing to do a warm up before coming on as a substitute for Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in the 1-0 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.

The Uruguayan was brought on in the 75th minute, with hopes he would be able to inspire a turnaround for the Red Devils, but instead, the game couldn’t be salvaged.

Keane watched the game on Sky Sports, and after the match, didn’t hesitate to slam both his former side’s performance and Cavani’s behaviour.

He said, “I’m intrigued when I look at warm-ups. Cavani never threw a leg, he actually didn’t do a warm-up, did he?

“Then he comes on as a sub and is being asked to get them back in the game. Ole’s talking about having to get him (Cavani) up to speed, well, sometimes it’s up to the player to do something. Ole will pay the ultimate price, obviously.

“Ole will lose his job, walk out of this group of players, that’s what’s going to happen. I’ve been saying it for the last month or two, but you still think, ‘you never know in this game. Things might change’, and you think it’s up to Ole to motivate these players for Arsenal at home.

“People keep saying there’s no support, the stadiums are empty, this is still a great setting if you’re a professional footballer, to play at Old Trafford.”

United are yet to win at home in the Premier League this season, after losing games to Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Arsenal.
