‘You can’t teach that’ – Micah Richards reveals the biggest quality of Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards has singled out the intelligence of Manchester United striker Cavani as his biggest strength.

The former England international believes the striker’s most dangerous weapon is his intelligence and claims it’s a quality that can not be taught.

Speaking to BBC’s Match of the Day, former Manchester City full-back Micah Richards said: “I played against him and he ran me ragged. You can’t teach that, he’s a natural born goalscorer, he’s so intelligent.

“Edinson Cavani is a provider too and he works for the team. He wants to close people down, he still puts a shift in at 33. He’s outstanding in that area.”

The Uruguayan has been impressive since signing for the club in the summer and his predatory instincts have not gone unnoticed.
