(Video) Cavani pulls out lung-busting run to rescue a pass Ronaldo had given up on

Manchester United’s dramatic win over Unai Emery’s Villarreal will be remembered for Cristiano Ronaldo’s late winner Edinson Cavani’s late introduction sparked late pressure from the Reds.

The veteran striker has made three appearances from the bench this season and after last season’s heroics, he remains one of the fan-favourites at Old Trafford.

As the clock wound down in the 90-minute affair, a second goal was looking increasingly unlikely for United, who looked set to settle for one point from their opening two games.

Cavani had other plans, however. One incident, as seen above, shows the Uruguay international pulling out a lung-busting run to rescue a wayward pass from Nemanja Matic. Ronaldo is also seen giving up on the overhit effort.

Cavani ran the width of the pitch to keep it in play and succeeded, which eventually resulted in another attack for his side.

  1. Cavani must start why is he being a sub these other players like greenwood and rashford all had their worth to prove the e best strikers this seasons before he arrived yet cavani is one of best strikers in the no. 9 list even in the premier league he’s a lethal striker put greenwood or martial at psg cavani will still be on top of them

  2. Cavani changed our season, without him we would have finished outside the top 4. He should be first on the team sheet if he’s healthy. A partnership with Ronaldo would be amazing. If Cavani and Suarez works then so does Cavanj and Ronaldo, with Greenwood there too. If he leaves our season will collapse

  3. I still cannot understand Ole tactical..why Cavani still at bench..not 1st eleven even he prove before deserve in skuad..

  4. Cavani should start for United while Ronald should be at the left wing, Greenwood on the right then you we see real action. He’s a good striker with a lot of experience, he’s always at the right position and st the right time Ole should give him enough time to play.

    1. Green Wood just doesn’t pass…i think Ronaldo neesds to give ..him the same speech he recieved…from his former team-mate about not passing to..VanNistleroy….💯👑
