Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani seems to be feeling stress related to his recent injury. The former Napoli man admitted that he could no longer wait to return to the field and defend the Red Devils banner.
When he joined Manchester United in the transfer market last summer, Edinson Cavani did not immediately become part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team.
He still has to compete for a place in the first team, but in recent weeks it looks like Cavani has started to start consistently, shifting Anthony Martial as Manchester United’s main striker.
This of course cannot be separated from a series of neat performances from the 33-year-old striker. But unfortunately, when the momentum arrived, Cavani was hit by a muscle injury during a training session a few days ago.
As a result, he has to go through several Manchester United matches because he has to receive treatment and undergo a recovery.
Ofcourse, Cavani is annoyed with this situation, this can also be seen from the upload on his Instagram account when Manchester United are struggling against Chelsea.
“I really want to get back to playing soon,” wrote the striker on his Instagram account.
Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the current condition of Cavani in a press conference ahead of the match against Chelsea.
At that time, the coach from Norway said that the striker’s condition has actually improved. But he is not fit enough to train.
The manager believes Cavani will soon be back in the Red Devils squad.
So, it is likely that Cavani will only be able to play in the match against Crystal Palace in the middle of the week. The duel itself was titled the continuation of the 27th Premier League matchdays.
The Red Devils of course need additional points, because after the draw they found in the match against Chelsea yesterday, the distance from the leaders, Manchester City, has widened to 12 points.
However, of course it’s never easy to deal with Crystal Palace, especially when you see MU’s performance at Chelsea headquarters yesterday. Therefore, Cavani’s presence in the main squad is expected.
