Edinson Cavani is Manchester United’s man of the week. Author of a double and an assist against Southampton, the Uruguayan had worn his own. But shortly after, El Matador came down several floors since he was at the heart of a controversy following a message to a friend that he posted on his social networks. The Premier League has, in fact, opened an investigation for comments that could be considered racist. The player, who defended himself, was supported by his club.
This Tuesday, his trainer, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, rushed to his aid at a press conference. “We have contacted Edinson and he is so sorry for the mistake he made. There was no bad intention at all, it was just a loving message to a friend. The FA asked him to explain himself and we will support him. It’s one of those unfortunate situations, it just came into the country and in Uruguay it’s used in a different way. We support it and we also support the FA. We want to fight against discrimination. I’m sure Edinson has learned. ” The striker will have the opportunity to forget this controversy tomorrow against Paris, his former club.
