Edinson cavani will play until the end of next season in Manchester United and the Uruguayan explained the reasons for that decision during an interview with the program 2 tip. The forward said he decided to stay for “the union of many things”, among which he mentioned the love and trust that they have given him in the club, and the competitive hunger to seek a title.
Cavani mentioned that “there are moments when one begins to have the need to want to be a little closer to his people and affections”, and that “there is no year in which he does not think about it.” Despite this, he said that the decision comes from a set of factors, and spoke of the love that he was given at Manchester United, both by his teammates, as the officials and the fans.
“My start was difficult here, not because I didn’t play, but because things were happening like adapting to another country, with a very difficult climate when you come from places where you live from the sun, that English doesn’t understand it so well, a lot of things. Also, situations that happened like the post on Instagram, and so on other little things that have made the first months difficult, but everything else, such as the coach’s confidence in his statements, the recognition of certain things, whether you want to or not, are caresses to the soul that one receives when there you have the recognition of a former footballer or coach. There are many things that, when the time comes, make one say: I can’t leave here like this. Whether you like it or not, pride touches you a little. You have to allow yourself to live other things and fight for another season to try to win things with this club and try to leave a small mark, as I have had in other places; for those people, that sincere affection they have had with me and my family, ”said Cavani.
Among the requests he had to renew his relationship with Manchester United, Cavani mentioned that his colleagues told him that they wanted him there, and that one even told him: “if you leave, it makes me want to cry.”. “Situations like this, whether you like it or not, make you stay, motivate you to keep trying to write a little bit of history in this club,” he commented.
LA CHANCE DE BOCA
The “Matador” also referred to the possibility of reaching Boca Juniors, and it was blunt: “The possibility that they would take me was real”. Cavani mentioned that he has contact with Juan Román Riquelme, vice president and idol of the Xeneize club, “since the time I was at PSG, and not to tell me ‘you have to come’ but to stay in touch, congratulate me and put yourself at my orders”.
“I have had talks with him, but things have always been very clear between him and me. It was something that was concrete, they showed me their interest in loving me in their club. I appreciate it and I have always said it, and they know perfectly what I feel and think, the possibility that they took me was real. I was always very clear so there is no ‘r’, when things are clear and good. Later, in the press and everything that is built around it, as always, there are half truths and half lies ”, explained the Uruguayan.
Asked if the door had been left open for a future arrival in Boca, he replied: “I never closed it, at least”. “You would have to ask them if Boca’s door is open. For my part, I have commented on my feeling. Today the reality is this, I am here and my head is here and with a tremendous desire to do my best, as I have always done everywhere. I defend the shirt as if I was a fan since I was born. I live football that way. I am happy, we are fond of the people of the club and we will do our best until the last game we play here, “he added.
