(Man Utd, 33 ans) © Provided by Sports.fr (Man Utd, 33 years old) Edinson Cavani and Manchester United published a press release on Monday afternoon after a controversial message from the " Matador". Author of a decisive double for Manchester United (2-3), Sunday afternoon in the Premier League, Edinson Cavani was suddenly plunged into a big controversy across the Channel. The Uruguayan veteran thanked one of his followers on Instagram, calling him a "negrito", which instantly puts him in the sights of the English Federation, which wants to be very harsh with the racist messages written by the players on social networks. On the Red Devils website, former goalscorer PSG explained: “The message I posted after Sunday's game was a loving thank you to a friend, whom I thanked for his congratulations. The last thing I wanted was to offend someone. I am completely against racism and deleted the post as soon as it was explained to me that it could be interpreted differently. I sincerely want to apologize for that ". A suspension of at least 3 matches? The Mancunian management thus supports their new player, ensuring that there was "absolutely no evil intention behind the message from Edinson", who "apologized for any offense unintentionally caused". And to recall that "Manchester United and all the players are fully engaged in the fight against racism". The case is closed at United, but the FA will not fail to study this case to possibly sanction "El Matador", as it had done with Bernardo Silva, author of a joke deemed racist against his teammate and friend Benjamin Mendy. The FA also warned the players at the start of the season: racist slippages on social networks can lead to a suspension of at least 3 matches.
