Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gives Edinson Cavani advice

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has advised the wantaway Uruguayian Edinson Cavani to make the most of the time he has left in Old Trafford at the highest level of the game and to commit to Manchester United for another term.

Cavani has netted seven goals in his last six appearances for The Red Devils and his brace in the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday helped Ole Gunnar’s team advance to the Europa League final with an 8-5 aggregate triumph against Roma.

Cavani scored four of the eight goals across the back-to-back tie and created a further two assists and the Uruguayan is in the best form of his short United profession at the moment.

United boss has told the 34 years old to make sure he continues to play at the highest level he can, preferably than signing off from the game in Europe with more yet to offer.

The striker runs out of contract this season after only signing a short-term deal last October and after the struggles of a Greater Manchester winter in lockdown he had been ardent to return to South America, but belief is growing he could be persuaded to stay at United for another term.


“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,” said Solskjaer.

“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.”

Cavani has been applauded as a role model for Mason Greenwood this summer but his professionalism and fitness are a brilliant example to all of Solskjaer’s squad.

Solskjaer’s United team remains a comparatively young one and he understands Cavani is serving as a motivation to all of them, despite the language barrier infrequently getting in the way.

“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,” he said. “

“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.

“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.”
