Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urges Edison Cavani to extend his stay at Old Trafford as he brings inspiration to his young squad members.


Solskjaer advises Cavani to make the most of the time he has left at the highest level. He urges the veteran strike to commit to Manchester United for another season.

The 34-year-old stands at an incredible recent form with seven goals in his last six appearances for United. He was also instrumental in the Europa League semifinals on both legs, igniting the first-leg comeback.

However, Solskjaer wonders he can still produce the best at his age. He urges him to enjoy playing at the highest level of the game as he can.

“Sometimes I look at him and think wow, at that age I had to retire because of my knees. I wish I could keep going like he does,” Solskjaer said.

“So what I say to him as well: play at the highest level as long as you can. Play and enjoy it because suddenly it is taken away and hopefully we can see him here next year.

Also, Solskjaer believes Cavani is an inspiration to his relatively young squad members as they do in the old times.

“He has to be. When I had Sir Alex Ferguson as the manager, I must have picked up something from him.

“We had Ryan Giggs playing at the age he played and his teammates picked up something from him.

“And Edinson is like that as well. He is 34, he lives his life absolutely like a top professional. That’s how to look after yourself. That’s how to be focused, and I’m so pleased to have him in this squad,” the Norwegian said.

“Even with his little English. Football is a language everyone understands and preparation and focus and concentration and professionality is something that everyone understands. And they can see it every day when they look at him – which is great for my young team,” Solskjaer added.
