Manchester United boss, Ole Gunner Solskjaer has expressed confidence that new signing, Edinson Cavani, will prove to be a shrewd addition to the United squad but admits that the Uruguayan needs to work on his match sharpness
Solskjaer said Cavani “still hasn’t ticked all the boxes” at Manchester United with the striker unable to “live on memory” when it comes to playing his first game for the club.
Cavani was signed by Man United on deadline day of the summer transfer window.
Solskjaer believes that the 33-year-old former Paris Saint-Germain star will prove to be a huge success at the club.
Solskjaer spoke with the club’s official website after making the decision to leave the former Napoli striker out of a Champions League opener that would have seen him reunited with PSG:
“He’s naturally fit. He is fit enough but he needs to play football with the rest of the players and be in those kinds of situations,” United boss said.
“Of course, you can’t live on memory, really, because it’s been a while.
“He’s very thorough, professional and he knows what he needs and what he wants. He still hasn’t ticked all the boxes before he’s available to play.”
Cavani will play no part on Tuesday in the familiar surrounds of Parc des Princes.
