Erik ten Hag told big blunder he has already made at Man Utd, expert denounces ‘ridiculous decision’

An pundit has criticized Erik ten Hag and Manchester United for failing to keep ‘incredible striker’ Edinson Cavani past the current season.

Cavani was in excellent form during his debut season at Old Trafford, scoring 17 goals in 39 games. But this campaign was a struggle for the Uruguayan international.

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo immediately saw him fall into the pecking order. Groin, tendon and calf injuries also have an impact on Manchester United

In 2021-22, Cavani has played just 19 games in all competitions. And in that time, only two goals have come his way.

Cavani seems to like the club while a majority of the fans adore him for his hard-working nature on the pitch.

But the 35-year-old seems to be saying goodbye to the Red Devils this summer. Fabrizio Romano claims that Cavani wants to move on and start over somewhere else.

His ideal destination is Spain. This would give the veteran goalscorer his first stint in La Liga, with his previous European teams being Palermo, Napoli and then Paris Saint-Germain.

As Cavani’s contract expires on June 30, he can leave United on a free transfer.

Erik ten Hag criticized for ‘mistake number one’

Former West Ham player Frank McAvennie thinks letting Cavani go is ‘mistake number one’ for upcoming manager Ten Hag.

“Well, it looks like Cavani is going, which is a ridiculous decision,” McAvennie said during an interview with Football Insider

“He’s an incredible striker and he’s ahead of some of the other attackers out there, let me tell you.

“When he plays, he scores, it’s that simple. But for whatever reason, he hasn’t played this season.

Out of contract Man United stars don’t talk to Rangnick

Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Edison Cavani and other out-of-contract players won’t talk to Ralf Rangnick and Manchester United bosses about futures

“He has the appearance, but they are all off the bench. You see Sancho and Rashford playing, but they are both having a hard time.

“Next season will be difficult for them, there will be a lot of new players. You need an experienced head to keep the peace and keep everything stable.

“Cavani would be perfect for that, even if he doesn’t play that much.

“I know that Ten Hag has not even come through the door yet, but this seems to me to be mistake number one.”

It’s a bit harsh to blame Ten Hag for Cavani’s departure. The Dutchman can talk to the attacker to try and convince him to stay, but ultimately the decision rests with the player.

In addition, Ten Hag will probably choose Ronaldo as his regular striker next season. That means Cavani should spend most of his time on the couch, even if he’s fit.

In the meantime, a journalist has revealed where Jesse Lingard would like to play once he leaves the Theater of Dreams – like Cavani – in the summer.
