Man Utd fans hail Edinson Cavani with ABBA chant after trademark Villarreal goal
Manchester United hero Edinson Cavani was on hand to rally his team-mates after they went behind to Villarreal in the Europa League final – to the delight of fans.
The talismanic forward was fuming at his team-mates following Gerard Moreno's opener, and he ended up netting the equaliser early in the second half.
The Uruguayan has recently agreed a one year extension at Old Trafford, having impressed during his first season in the Premier League after leaving PSG.
The 34-year-old has now managed 17 goals in all competitions during his time at United, earning him rave reviews as links to Harry Kane rumble on.
During the Villarreal fixture, Cavani begin to work even harder to get his team back into the fold, as he did by netting the equaliser early in the second half.
Supporters then begun reciting the chant they that have created for the forward to the tune of Abba, sharing their love for the striker on social media.
One fan said in response: "It’s a simple game. Give It to Edi Cavani and watch him score all the goals. Why do we not just do this?"
With a second adding: "GIVE IT GIVE IT GIVE IT TO EDI CAVANI JUST PASSSS HIM THE BALL & WATCH HIM SCORE ALL THE GOAAALSSSS."
Dion Dublin told BBC Sport following his goal: "This is the thing about Edinson Cavani – there are three people that are offside, but Cavani sprints to get back onside, just in case the ball falls to him.
"The willingness to want to score."
Despite his form Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said earlier in the week that his deal would not stop the club from looking at potential new strikers this summer.
He said: "Of course we're still looking at players in every position. Just because Edinson stays doesn't mean we are not looking for a forward.
"Having Bruno Fernandes as a ten doesn't mean we're not looking for an attacking midfield, or having Marcus Rashford doesn't mean we're not looking in their positions.
"It's the nature of the beast that you're always trying to improve.
"But of course Edinson staying is great for us and whoever comes in will learn from him definitely – whoever you are. So the short answer is no we've not stopped looking for a centre forward but the longer one is more complicated than just that."
