Cavani Sr has also revealed that his son wants to join Boca Juniors next after holding talks with vice-president Juan Roman Riquelme.  

“My son does not feel comfortable in England and wants to be close to the family again,” he is quoted as saying.  

“Edinson is going to end up playing in South America.  

As well as the three-match ban, the former PSG and Napoli ace was also fined £100,000 by the FA for the offensive remark he made on Instagram in November.
