Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke about the loss before the match and defined the reasons why he decided to leave Edinson Cavani home.
Everything went perfectly: after a long pause, Edinson Cavani, who moved to Manchester United, had to make a direct debut in the Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain. But it would be too perfect a story to really happen. The 33-year-old Uruguayan striker started training with the team. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not take him to Paris. The United coach explained why he acted like that.
“We really wanted him to be with us, but he has not played for a long time. In our opinion, it is better for him to continue training first. “It’s better for everyone,” Solskjaer said ahead of the central match of the first round of the Champions League group stage. In addition to Cavani, United will also miss Harry Maguire, as well as Mason Greenwood, Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard. “We hope we will not miss these players for long,” Solskjaer said.
Recall that Manchester United took Edinson Cavani for free in the summer because he had a contract with PSG. The Uruguayan played in the Paris Grand from 2013 to 2020 and managed to score 200 goals in 301 matches.
