Solskjaer opens up and reveals new Manchester United star Cavani ‘hasnt ticked all the boxes’
Edinson Cavani “still hasn’t ticked all the boxes” at Manchester United, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
After months of speculation and rumours, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally managed to bring in a new striker to the club, after they offered free agent Cavani a big contract after he failed to secure a move after leaving PSG.
Questions have been asked of whether Cavani can deliver the goods in English football, but plenty are tipping him to make a Zlatan Ibrahimovic-style impact for United, and Solskjaer believes the former Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain star will prove to be a shrewd addition in time.
However, he admits he cannot be thrown in at the deep end before working on his match sharpness, as he has not ticked all the boxes just yet, he told the club website: “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.
“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.”
It will be very interesting to see just how much of an impact that Cavani can have in this Manchester United side as Solskjaer needs him to bang in the goals on a weekly basis.
A few seasons ago we would say that is a given, but the man is not 33-years of age and is not the same player that scored 30-goals on a regular basis.
