El Matador was back in the United shirt in the away meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux before the international break before sitting out Newcastle United’s visit to Old Trafford last Saturday.
Moreover, the win in the Black Country was also Cavani’s last appearance wearing the iconic no.7 for then Reds, before elegantly passing the baton to the returning Cristiano Ronaldo. The prolific striker will now don the no.21 shirt, the same number he wears for the Uruguayan national team.
However, another legendary United no.7 was the topic of conversation in a recent question-and-answer session with supporters.
Azrie from Malaysia asked our 34-year-old forward: “If you could play with a Reds legend, who would it be and why?”
Edi, thus, did not take long to come up with an answer;
“I reckon that Cantona would be a player with whom I would have liked to share the pitch here,” our new no. 21 said.
“That is because of his character and for the way he lived out his football. And as I said for his personality out there on the pitch.”
With that, one can just imagine the elegant Cantona setting up the ruthless Cavani in front of goal… What a duo they would have been for United!
