Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani explains meaning behind his arrow celebration
Cavani explains his celebration
Edinson Cavani linked up with Manchester United last year.
The Uruguayan joined the club on a free transfer following his PSG contract expiring.
After overcoming some fitness issues, Cavani went on to enjoy a solid debut season in Manchester, notching 17 goals and providing six assists for United.
Cavani has had a fine goal-scoring record for many years now, netting 200 for PSG and 104 for Napoli in just 138 games.
As a result, most fans are now likely familiar with the 34-year-old’s iconic arrow celebration.
And now, the forward has moved to explain why he does this celebration:
“I’ve changed my celebration a few times now and again. But this latest one comes from when you start growing up and begin to learn and gain knowledge about things that date back from a long time ago.
“It kind of comes from our population, our native Uruguayans. Because I think and feel that down through the various generations of my family, I have roots from back in those times.
“I got the idea of being able to do the celebration where I take out the arrow and fire it. So that’s a bit of the history behind it, which in turn explains the thinking behind my daughter’s name, India.
“It’s all connected! There, I’ve explained it all a bit for you!”

Cavani gives up no.7 shirt
Elsewhere, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been speaking about Cavani giving up his no.7 shirt.
The forward donned the no.7 in his debut season in England and was once again handed it over the summer.
However, after Cristiano Ronaldo joined the club, Cavani would agree to give up his shirt number for CR7, with Solskjaer having this to say on the situation recently:
Solskjaer on Cavani giving up the No 7 shirt: “Cristiano rang him and they spoke. To pass up his shirt shows the respect he’s got for Cristiano but also Cristiano speaking to Edinson shows respect the other way. Two top professionals, players and human beings.” #MUFC
