Why Roy Keane was unhappy with Cavani despite his brace against Southampton

Manchester United legend Roy Keane could not resist taking a little swipe at Edinson Cavani despite the Uruguayan’s brace against Southampton.

Cavani was one of two half-time changes made by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he looked to engineer a fightback at St Mary’s, with the home side having taken a two-goal lead.

Cavani took a little longer than normal to get on the pitch, having waited on the sidelines for a minute as he put on a different pair of boots with longer studs.

“He was obviously slow getting onto the pitch with them boots. Just as well he did score because how the guy is not prepared and ready to go on… it’s mind-boggling,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“Obviously he didn’t need the boots in the end, scored with two headers. But great contribution when he came on. He still has that quality and that hunger and desire.”
