Cavani hasn’t had mu’ch playi’ng time since Ron’aldo’s Old Traff’ord return but he insi’sts he’s hap’py at United as it’s ju’st a part of football.

The Urugu”ayan said: “So’metimes you play mo’re, someti’mes you play less, mana’gers m’ake decis’ions, but that doesn’t stop the work to alw”ays be com’petitive.”

Speak’ing of Rona’ldo, Liver’pool legend Didi Ham’ann reck’ons the ex-Juve’ntus star is keeping United afloat this sea’son and wit’hout him they’re path’etic.

Hamm’an told Sk’y Spor’ts: “The one and on’ly reaso’n why Manch’ester Uni’ted are still in the title rac’e and do’ing alrig’ht in the Cham’pions Lea’gue is Cris’tiano Ronaldo.”

He said to ITV Sports: “I thi’nk it’s ridicu’lous, absol’utely ridiculous.

“Do they w’ant ano’ther [Louis] Van Gaal or ano’ther [Jose] Mou’rinho? What do they want?”

CAV TO KEEP GOING

Edison Cav’ani says he is com’mitted to the Ma’nchester United cau’se des’pite see’ing game-time limited after the retu’rn of Cristia’no Ronal’do.

Despi’te be’ing lin’ked with a loan move to Barcel’ona last month, Cavani says he is happy to stay and fight for his pl’ace at the Red Devils.

While on intern’ational duty this week, Cavani told El Obser’vador: “In foot’ball, you hav’e to always be ready.

“It’s one of the ke’ys at the top level.

“Someti’mes you pl’ay more, someti’mes you play less, managers make decisions, but that doe’sn’t stop the wo’rk to always be compet’itive.”

United have been so bad t’hat Hama’nn exp’ects th’eir boss Ole Gunnar Sols’kjaer to be sacked sooner rat’her tha’n later.

The German also claim’ed that without Cristia’no Ronaldo, the Red Devils woul’dn’t still be in the runn’ing to lift the Premi’er League title.

He told Sky Sports: “The 1 and’ only reas’on why Man’chester Un’ited are still in the title race an’d doing alright in the Champions League is Cristi’ano Ron’aldo.

“I don’t kn’ow where they wou’ld be wi’thout him or his goals. It is all patch’work. Old Tra’fford, that used to be the The_atre of Dr_eams, now it is more like th’e Thea’tre of Night’mares.

“Their perfor’mances are pathetic. At the moment, they just d’on’t play good foo’tball.”
