Manchester United boss: Why Edinson Cavani didn’t play vs Newcastle

Following his terrific performance for Manchester United in their 6-2 drubbing of Roma in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night, Edinson Cavani has reportedly decided where he will play next season.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the reasoning behind his selection against Newcastle United.

The Norwegian has opted for an attacking line-up against the Magpies with Cristiano Ronaldo making his highly anticipated second debut for the club at Old Trafford.

Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood will flank the returning Portuguese superstar, with his countryman Bruno Fernandes playing just behind our no.7.

Ole is excited to see Ronaldo return to the Old Trafford pitch.

“We’re excited, we can feel the atmosphere in the place, everyone’s been happy,” the manager says.

“There’s here’s a buzz about the place. That’s how it should be around Man. United. Cristiano’s had a fantastic career and he’s coming in to help the team, he’s not come to show off himself and try to give us that extra edge.

“He’s ready, he’s focused, professional as always and meticulous in everything e hod’s. You look at him and what he’s achieved in his career. He wants to prove to him and not just me what he can do.”

Unfortunately, there is no Edinson Cavani in Ole’s team on Saturday.
“He’s still not ready,” the boss says before further explaining El Matador’s absence.

“He got a little knock in training, so hopefully won’t be too long.”
