After saving Manchester United the trouble of another defeat in the Premier League, Edinson Cavan could have gotten into trouble himself. Cavani made sure the #OleOut people were silenced.
The Uruguayan may be the subject of an investigation from the Football Association after allegedly using a racially offensive term in a social media post.
The 33-year-old shared some of the positive messages he received from fans in the wake of the victory and responded to one post with the message “Gracias n*****”.
The term Cavani used is the same former Liverpool forward Luis Suarez is said to have used during his altercation with Patrice Evra in October 2011, which resulted in the former Liverpool star being fined £40,000 and banned for eight matches. Cavani has since deleted the post.
