Manchester United star Edinson Cavani opens up for his famous goal celebration.
Experience and skill are not just the gifts to Manchester United that Edinson Cavani has brought. With a signature goal celebration that stands out, the Uruguayan also came.
Each time he scores for a club or country, the 33-year-old kneels and fires an imaginary arrow.
The player has now opened up the mystery behind the celebration in his speech to the United Review (h/t The Mirror). The origins of his celebration are linked to the indigenous Uruguayan population, the Charruas.
“It’s a bit of a long story and it’s kind of wrapped up in the history of our country and the Charruas, the indigenous population.”
“That arrow that I take out and then fire is a celebration of the goal that encapsulates all these things: a mixture of the name of my daughter and my country’s indigenous people.”
Cavani, signed on a free sign in the summer, emerged as a shrewd signature piece. He made a set of goals to help us win the 21st league title, which could go a long way.
Cavani has won both Paul Pogba and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rave reviews. A serial PSG winner, he’ll hopefully replicate the same thing at United.
The Archer celebration will become a regular staple at Old Trafford if he continues to impress.
