Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Edinson Cavani has been a positive influence on his teammates, following his deadline day arrival to Old Trafford in 2020.
The Uruguayan has netted 5 times across all competitions for United so far, while playing a key part in some of the goals and wins we’ve recorded.
In Sunday’s clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford, Cavani earned the free kick that led to the winning goal, after good work around the Reds’ area, and Solskjaer is pleased with what he’s done so far.
When asked about some of the qualities the 33 year old has brought to his new club, Solskjaer replied, “How long have you got? When a striker of that age runs almost 12 kilometres… he chases down every time their centre-back has the ball and when the keeper has the ball.
“He puts in tackles on the centre-midfielders. He makes a mistake for the goal Liverpool scored, but he’s the one that is closest to winning it back on his own 18-yard box.
“His reaction and his work-rate and his habits and the threat in the box, the humility of coming in everyday single day doing your best. We could go on and on. But his experience and his attitude have given us a lesson, every single one of us.”
