‘35-year-old striker will win many games for Manchester United’ – ex United striker admits

Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has hailed the contribution of his countryman Edinson Cavani at Manchester United.

Cavani hasn’t had as much game time he’d have liked this season, due to injury and the emergence of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cavani has looked sharp in the games he has played, and played a key role for Manchester United last season, where he was in fine form towards the end of the campaign.

Veteran Uruguayan striker Forlan, believes that Cavani should be given a run of games in the team.

 “I think at United if he had the opportunity to play many games in a row, he would have been scoring many many important goals for the club,” Diego Forlan said.

“He did that last season if you remember. At the end he was playing many games before the Europa League final and you could see in the way that many people were behind him, players and the way he took the team to the next level.

“Why? Because he was playing most of the games. This season he started the season injured and then he didn’t play for one reason or another which I don’t know. He never played two or three games in a row and it is difficult for a player to perform well if he doesn’t have many games.”
