Solskger praises Cavani’s “big influence” at Manchester United – Soccer Sports

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Edinson Cavani’s “big influence” at Manchester United after reaching the semifinals of the EFL Cup.

Cavani scored a great 88-minute goal before Anthony Martial beat Everton 2-0 at Goodison Park on Wednesday.

Uruguay’s goal came from their fourth shot in the match, one more than Everton managed as a team.

Cavani scored four goals in 12 United games this season, and Solskger praised the striker and rejected the proposal that he had a late start at the 33-year-old club.

“I think you’re wrong. I don’t think he started late. I think he’s doing really well. He was great,” the United manager said at a press conference.

“He is obviously injured. Anyone can be injured. He came late [in the transfer window] So I’m really happy with his influence. In the dressing room, the habits he brings to training, his attitude towards games. You can see how good he is to take care of himself.

“He scored some very important goals for us, and it gives us experience, he gives a lot. Of course, here because he was out for seven months. We’ve been patient with him. I think he had a big impact. “

Paul Pogba produced a great performance when Cavani and Marshall fired United in the semi-finals against Manchester City.

None of the players on the pitch had more keypasses (3) than midfielders, and did not take ownership (8) more often.

“Paul is getting healthier and healthier, which is the biggest thing for Paul. His injury hurt last half and COVID is another injury at the international break,” said Solskger.

“I’m very happy with his performance. I’m very happy with his contribution to the team. He’s playing better and maybe just getting better.”

United, sitting third at the Premier League table, will travel to Leicester City on Saturday.
