Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani claims that the injury condition he is currently dealing with has persisted since the preseason. As he himself reveals now, a tendon injury kept Cavani on the bench against Manchester City last Saturday, November 6th.
Edinson Cavani has disclosed that the ailment that compelled him to miss Manchester City was a recurrence of tendon damage. The skilled striker sat out Manchester United’s 0-2 defeat to their Manchester rivals in the Premier League over the weekend.
Prior to this, Cavani scored in the domestic win against Tottenham (refer to our football prediction to know more). The Uruguayan striker also made a substitute appearance for Manchester United in the Champions League draw at Atalanta (football match).
A Tendon Injury Kept Cavani on the Bench against Manchester City
However, Cavani missed the 0-2 derby loss to the Premier League champions at home, at the Old Trafford, on Saturday.
Moreover, after this loss, the striker missed Uruguay’s World Cup qualifying squads again (the football news), against Argentina and Bolivia.
And now, Cavani says the ailment is the same one that bothered him during the preseason. But, despite working on healing this tendon injury, he doesn’t know how long he’ll be out.
The forward told El Observador: “The issue was like this. Before starting the season, I had discomfort in a tendon.
“It made me spend a couple of weeks out until I began to gain some minutes [on the pitch] in my team. I had to go back to the national team, always with a bit of pain, but with the hope that it would disappear. It was improving but, after Tottenham, it started coming back.
“They are difficult injuries and I decided to have the treatment so that it does not continue to get worse, and to recover as soon as possible to be fit for my team and the national team.”
