The Uruguayan has adapted to the team and is in good shape. According to Solskjaer, United lacked a Cavani-type forward.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about Manchester United newcomer Edinson Cavani, who has been playing excellent football in recent games.
“He has all the qualities of a great player …” – says the Norwegian coach. “He trains differently and has a different recovery process. We have never had such a dangerous player since Romelu Lukaku left.”
“Andy Cole reminds me he’s smart and sharp in the penalty area. He knew in advance where the pass was going to get. He knew in advance when he was going to start moving. As Sir Alex said, the greatest friend of such forwards is the space created in the penalty area.”
“Greenwood, Rashford and Martial are attackers of a different style, so Cavani’s presence here creates a kind of balance.” – added Solskjaer.
