Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has come out to say that he felt Edinson Cavani would be another Radamel Falcao or Alexis Sanchez. Gary, however, revealed that he now wants the Uruguayan to extend his contract at the club.
According to him, Greenwood needs Cavani’s experience alongside him for one more year because the youngster still has a lot to learn from the deadly striker.
He added that Cavani has really applied himself brilliantly and he has been a big help to Manchester United.
His words, “Tottenham had a throw with two minutes to go, and Cavani was moving between the centre-backs trying to stop the ball from being thrown in, and he’s organising where [Mason] Greenwood should be. I thought: ‘Greenwood needs another year of Cavani being alongside him.”
“It inspired us as young players when you saw great players like Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce and Eric Cantona and Mark Hughes. And you see the best players in the world, or those who have been the best in the world like Cavani, doing his work like that in the 94th minute, someone like Mason Greenwood, who needs people who are mentors, good standards above him, who can coach him on the pitch. I just thought him and Marcus Rashford need another year of Cavani.”
“He’s been a really brilliant example. I was a little bit nervous of him coming in, because of Falcao, Alexis Sanchez, showcase signings. This one has been different. He’s really applied himself brilliantly and has been a big help to Manchester United.”
“He does the right things. The right movements. It’s clockwork, that run across the defender, across the near post, the one you’re always trying to get young strikers to do.”
