Man Utd legend: Cavani joined the club too late

Manchester United legend, Mark Hughes, believes Edinson Cavani joined the club a few years too late.

The Uruguayan, 34, has been an extremely useful player for the Red Devils this season.

Cavani is currently absent with injury and is missed within the starting lineup.

However, Hughes feels Cavani at his peak is what United really needs upfront.

“United have got good quality at the top end of the pitch,” Hughes told Sky Sports.

“[Marcus] Rashford and [Mason] Greenwood are highly thought of, but maybe they need Cavani five years ago when he was in his pomp.

‘They probably got him at the wrong time, but he is still an outstanding centre forward.

“When I see him playing in this team I think he gives them more focus, and they have the confidence of giving the ball to his feet and things happen around him.”
