Edinson Cavani Man Utd 2020-21

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed what his Manchester United forwards must learn from Edinson Cavani after his latest stellar performance in the FA Cup.

The 33-year-old didn’t get on the scoresheet during the 3-2 victorybut was a constant thorn in the Reds’ side with his superb hold-up play and pressing in the final third of the pitch.

He also saw aheader cannon off the post and won the free-kick which Bruno Fernandes dispatched late on to wrap up the win, earning special praise from his manager post-match.

Solskjaer has urged Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood to soak up as much knowledge from a man who joined United on a free transfer in October as they can, while highlighting his movement up front and expert recovery process behind the scenes.

“Anthony Martial,Marcus,Mason,Dan James, all our forwards they have to use the timeEdinsonis with us to the best effect,”he said following the Liverpool win,” the Norwegian head coach told reporters. “They have to learn off his movement, you have to learn off his attitude, his desire to win.

“He’s one of the most hard-working centre-forwards but he is also one of the cleverest, his movements inside the box are very good. You see his header towards the end. There is loads they can learn off him.

“They’ve got to learn from him. Look at his fitness, he’s 34 next month, and the way he has looked after himself.

“When you bring in older and more experienced players, it’s also to help the rest of them, it is not just for him to come in and do his job. He knows he has a job or a responsibility to be a role model and I asked him to do that.”

Cavani will be back in contention for a place in Solskjaer’s line up when the Red Devils host Sheffield United on Wednesday.
