FA To Investigate Man United Star Cavani

FA To Investigate Man United Star Cavani

The English FA is expected to investigate a social media post by Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani.

Cavani shared an Instagram story from a fan, using a racially offensive term. The post has since been deleted.

United stressed that the word was clearly used in an affectionate manner and has different connotations in South America, where Cavani is from.

The club said the 33-year-old had been made aware such terms are perceived very differently in the UK and he subsequently deleted the post.

The FA did not wish to comment on Sunday night, but Sky Sports News understands the governing body will launch a probe into the online post.

Facebook, the owners of Instagram, have been approached for comment.

Cavani came off the bench to score twice in United’s dramatic 3-2 comeback victory against Southampton at St Mary’s.

The former PSG star also assisted Bruno Fernandes for their first goal in the win which saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side seal their fourth consecutive away Premier League win.

Cavani has now scored three league goals for the club since joining as a free agent in the summer transfer window.

    Is Cavani a child? Why is Manchester United making excuses on his behalf just like Liverpool did for his countryman Luis Suarez?
