Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on not including Cavani: “It is justified, he hasn’t played for a long time.”

Speaking to RMC Sport, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained his decision to leave Edinson Cavani out of tomorrow’s action vs PSG.

“We also wanted him to be here, but he has not played for a long time, it is justified, even if with a little regret. We thought that it was better for him to keep training. To prepare better. Edi knows what he wants and what he needs. He did not feel ready enough.”

Bruno Fernandes added to the same outlet:

“It is normal that he is not here, with just two days of training, he needs to feel better. He has installed himself well. We have done just one training session together. He likes to train with intensity, he has the qualities to be a leader for us, with how he trains. He will be important for us.”
