Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has confirmed he has a tendon injury.

The injury saw the Uruguayan striker miss Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League defeat to Manchester City.

Speaking to local newspaper El Observador back in his homeland of Uruguay, Cavani revealed: “The issue was like this. Before starting the season, I had discomfort in the tendon.

“It made me spend a couple of weeks out until I began to gain some minutes [on the pitch] in my team. I had to go back to the national team, always with a bit of pain, but with the hope that it would disappear.

“It was improving but, after Tottenham, it started coming back.

“They are difficult injuries,’ he admitted. ‘And I decided to have the treatment so that it does not continue to get worse, and to recover as soon as possible to be fit for my team and the national team.”
