Cavani Gives Fitness Update Ahead Of His Debut Against Newcastle

Manchester United new man Edinson Cavani is set to make his debut against Newcastle after the international break.

The Uruguayan was brought in on deadline day and having not played a competitive game since February, Cavani is not match fit.

“I think I’m probably just missing that contact with my team-mates, and getting up to speed with, say, small-sided drills on the training ground and the intensity of a game itself,” the former PSG star said in a selfie video over the weekend.

“But that’s what we’re here for, to work hard, and we’re trying to do our level best so that from the moment I start training with my team-mates, I can get up to speed in as short a period as possible and be competing straight away and giving my best for the group.”

Once fit, the 33-year-old will get to link up with fellow countryman Facundo Pellistri.

And he is excited to get going with the Uruguayan.
