Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is ‘excited’ to see both Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani in the same side.
The experienced duo are yet to play alongside each other for the Red Devils this season, as Cavani has been unavailable for selection in recent weeks due to a lack of fitness.
Cavani has been cleared to return to the squad against Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, though, and Solskjaer has indicated that he will use the pair together during stages of the 2021-22 campaign.
“It’s exciting and exciting to see those two together, I’m sure that’ll be a good partnership as well, we see teams dropping deep against us, not giving space in behind and they’re two boys you’d like to see in that scenario, I can see those two working well together,” Solskjaer told reporters.
Ronaldo has made a brilliant start to his second spell at the club, finding the back of the net on four occasions in three appearances, including three goals in two Premier League outings.
Cavani’s only appearance of the season to date came as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of August.
