Cavani gives middle finger to Man Utd fan after final game for the club

Departing Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani had an altercation with a fan after his final match for the club, giving the fan the middle finger as he boarded the team bus.

The Uruguayan’s contract with United expires next month and he will not be extending his stay at Old Trafford, with Ralf Rangnick giving him a rare start against Crystal Palace on Sunday as a farewell appearance.

Cavani played the full 90 minutes in a 1-0 defeat at Selhurst Park, though United were spared the embarrassment of playing in the Europa Conference League after West Ham were also beaten by Brighton.

The 35-year-old was given a good send-off on the pitch in south London, saluting the away supporters, while a clip of a young fan begging him to stay after United’s final home match this month also went viral.

But far from ending his United career on a high, Cavani’s final actions in the red of United saw him arguing with a fan after the game and twice giving the fan the middle finger.

It is unclear what was said, but the former PSG striker can be clearly seen pointing out one fan in particular as he made his way to the bus and then flipping the bird, doing it a second time for good measure.

Cavani looked furious with what had been said and his reaction prompted outrage from the fans waiting by the bus, many of whom yelled back and jeered him.

Earlier in the day, Rangnick had that the clash with Palace would be Cavani’s last game for the club, telling MUTV: ‘It would be good to finish this season with a good game, three points, and I’m pretty sure the team sees it the same way.

‘Out of our starting XI, there will be 10, apart from Edi Cavani, who will still be playing for this club next season. I presume they’d much rather play in the Europa League than the Conference League.’

Injuries and a lack of fitness have restricted Cavani to just 15 games this campaign in the Premier League, netting only twice.
