Like the rest of us, ex-Manchester United striker, Robin Van Persie was delighted with the brilliant showing from Edinson Cavani during yesterday’s inspirational comeback against Southampton.

With the Red Devils 2-0 down at halftime, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer threw in the Uruguayan, who came on to assist Bruno Fernandes for his goal in the 60th minute.

But it didn’t stop there, Cavani also bagged two more goals, to ensure United took all three points at the St Mary’s.

After the game, van Persie, who was obviously filled with delight, took to his official Twitter to write in awe, “El Matador,” followed with a bow and arrow emoji and a fire emoji.

Cavani’s goals on Sunday were his second and third in the Premier League, and we hope to see more of them.
