MANCHESTER, England (AP) – Edinson Cavani will follow another season with Manchester United.
The 34-year-old Uruguayan has 15 goals in his first season with Man U and helped secure him to second place in the Premier League. United must also play the final of the Europa League against Villarreal.
“Throughout the season I grew fond of the club and everything it represents,” Cavani said on Monday when announcing the extension of his contract. “I have a very good relationship with my teammates and with the coaching staff. They motivate me every day and I know that, together, we can do great things ”.
“From the moment I arrived I felt the confidence of the coach. As a player, that confidence makes you do your best. I want to thank him for that, ”added the forward.
Cavani enchanted himself from the start when he arrived at Old Trafford with the pass in his hands in October, with his goals and assists, but also with his dedication, which he transmits to young players like Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
“When Edinson signed, I said I could bring energy, power and leadership to this group and time proved me right. He has done everything I expected from him and more too, ”said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “We knew about his scoring ability. But his greatest contribution was made with his personality. He has a winning mentality and a great attitude in everything he does. “
“Edinson is one of the last to go to training and sets an example for the younger ones,” he added.
