A few weeks after having sparked a controversy across the Channel for alleged racist remarks, Edinson Cavani was talked about Wednesday evening for a bad gesture on the ground.
Edinson Cavani may have felt in the past that the French press had a hard tooth towards him, he is well served in the land of the tabloids! In the wake of a case of alleged racism, here is the Uruguayan targeted by observers for his bad gesture against Yerry Mina, Wednesday evening, during the quarter-final of the Coupe de la Ligue between Everton and Manchester United (0-2 victory for the Red Devils).
At the start of the second half, the former Parisian clashed with the Colombian defender, taking him by the throat before pushing him to the ground. An attitude that should have earned him a red card according to the English press, and the very wise Gary Lineker, hot on social networks: ” Cavani should have taken a red card with the VAR. He’s always the guy who maybe should have taken a red punishing you. Superb finish from Cavani on his goal, however. “
At the end of the match, the Matador struck to unlock the match (88e), imitated in added time by Anthony Martial (90e+6). Mancunian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer found no fault with the behavior of his striker after the fact in front of the media. ” They are two South Americans (Cavani and Mina, editor’s note) who have had a few battles before, not so long ago when they met with their respective selections. For me, it was a real football match, with supporters, tackles, yellow cards… I really enjoyed it. “
