(Video) Cavani furiously rushes to Greenwood’s aid following spat with two Roma stars

While in action on Thursday evening against Roma, Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani was spotted rushing to the aid of youngster Mason Greenwood.

The Red Devils came into Thursday’s second-leg Europa League semi-final 6-2 up on aggregate.

Looking to see the tie out, although eventually losing 3-2 on the night, striker Cavani put in another fine performance.

However, despite having a successful evening in front of goal following a commendable brace, the fiery South American also took no-nonsense when it came to his Italian opponents getting physical with his teammates.

During the match, Roma players Gianluca Mancini and Rick Karsdorp were captured roughing Greenwood up – an incident that Cavani wasted no time in getting involved in.
