New Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has been told he has made his first mistake as Manchester United boss by not keeping Edinson Cavani at the club.
This is according to former West Ham striker Frank McAvennie, who can’t believe Manchester United aren’t doing more to keep Cavani who will guarantee the club goals if he is given game time.
Cavani scored 17 goals in 39 games in his first season at Manchester United but made just 19 appearances in his second season, scoring just two goals.
“Well it looks like Cavani is going which is a ludicrous decision,” McAvennie told Football Insider.
“He is an unbelievable striker and he is streets ahead of some of the other attackers there, let me tell you.
“When he plays, he scores, It’s as simple as that. But for whatever reason, he hasn’t played this season.
“He has the appearances but they are all off the bench. You see the likes of Sancho and Rashford playing but they are both struggling.
“Next season is going to be tough for them, there will be a lot of new players. You need an experienced head to keep the peace and keep everything stable.
“Cavani would be perfect for that, even if he doesn’t play so much.
“I know Ten Hag hasn’t even come through the door yet but this looks like mistake number one to me.”
