EPL news: Edinson Cavani, Manchester United, Instagram, racist language, Negrito – what does it mean, what did he say

Published

on

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is expected to be investigated by the FA after using a term which the Football Association has previously deemed as racist on his Instagram account.

Fresh from United’s 3-2 win over Southampton in which he scored twice, Cavani shared an Instagram story involving a fan which contained the word “Negrito”.

The post has since been deleted, but Cavani could still face at least three games on the sidelines.

The English champions head into Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Ajax without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri, Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner.

Klopp was infuriated that Liverpool were chosen for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off in a 1-1 draw at Brighton just over 60 hours after they faced Atalanta in Europe on Wednesday night.
