Edinson cavani was cheeky to disrupt Villarreal’s warm up during Man Utd win

Edinson cavani made a joke to upset Villarreal staff at Manchester United’s Champions League win at Old Trafford Wednesday night.

United came from behind to win a decisive victory over the Spanish club. Paco Alcacer took the lead eight minutes into second-half.

It took only seven minutes for the hosts to even the score. Alex Telles scored a spectacular volley at the hour mark. Cristiano Rojo popped up deep in stoppage.

Cavani was called to the bench by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to assist them in finding the late winner. Before entering the fray, he also managed to penetrate the skin of the visiting team.

According to The AthleticUnai Emery, Villarreal’s boss, often puts his substitutes through a strange warm-up while watching from the sidelines. This is usually done by a sports scientist.

Three of his replacements perform a high-tempo routine starting at the 50th minute. This is a tactical periodization method that mimics the speed of the game.

Cavani decided to stretch his muscles between Emery’s teammates as Emery attempted to complete the warm-up.

At 34 years of age, Cavani knows all the tricks in the book and showed it with this superb piece of s***housery.

With 15 minutes left in the game, he was replaced by Paul Pogba and impressed United fans with a remarkable shift.

Just under 10 minutes were left and both teams were starting to tire. Nemanja Matic made a rash pass into the corner.

Villarreal was trying to see the ball for a goal kick. Cavani made a lung-busting sprint forward and won the ball back. United then picked Bruno Fernandes off the box’s edge.

Solskjaer was glowing about his veteran striker after the win and waxing poetic about his energy from the bench.
