It took a while, but Edinson Cavani appears to have finally found his goalscoring boots at Manchester United, coming off the bench against Southampton and almost single handedly turning the game around.
The Uruguayan was sent on at half time by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with the game 2-0 in favour of the Saints, and he repaid the Norwegian’s trust by assisting one and scoring two goals in the second half to help his side walk away with all three points.
Yet to start a Premier League game, the 33-year-old has, however, made a case for himself to potentially be in the first XI on Wednesday evening against his former club Paris Saint-Germain, which would allow him to show them exactly why they moved on perhaps too quickly from his services.
Le Parisien preview the Old Trafford clash, and dedicate a little section to Cavani, describing him as one of the ‘menaces’ for the Ligue 1 club, who could find themselves in a very precarious position in the Champions League should they fail to pick up the three points.
The French newspaper, speaking to those close to the player, state there is no ‘revenge mentality’ in Cavani’s head ahead of the game, but his ‘movement, intelligence and excellent timing’, as described by Solskjaer, are what Paris Saint-Germain can ‘fear’ on Wednesday evening.
