Story Explains How Great A Guy Edinson Cavani Is Off The Pitch

Story Explains How Great A Guy Edinson Cavani Is Off The Pitch

Edinson Cavani's wage demands may have put some teams off signing the player but his actions off the pitch suggest he's far from a greedy man.

The Uruguayan was available for free in the summer, after his contract with PSG expired, but both Benfica and Atletico Madrid were unable to afford his wages.

Eventually he signed for Manchester United on deadline day, in a one year deal worth a reported £200,000-a-week, with the potential of a second year.

Despite being one of the most recognisable men in sport, and no doubt worth a fair bit of money too, the former Napoli striker remains a gent off the pitch.

A story in El Matador, a biography of the player by Romain Molina, shows exactly what kind of guy Cavani is.

"One day, he did a photo shoot for Hugo Boss, who is a partner of PSG," the extract reads.

"At the end of the shoot, Cavani asks for the reference of a costume he likes. The photographer tells him he can take it, a brand manager confirms it.

"He took two and at Hugo Boss, it was the first time we saw a PSG player do that. It's a little trick. But there is only Cavani who does that."

They say you can judge a person on the way they treat people who serve them and Molina continued to outline how great the 33-year-old is, adding, "He used to often go and eat with club employees and not the 'stars'. He used to always talk with the cleaning ladies, with the housekeepers.

"Do you realise that Cavani spent a month in his hometown in Salto while on vacation? In the middle of winter there! It was 7 degrees and he got there by regional bus.

"Six hour drive! When you earn €16million per year, it is not common."

United fans will be hoping his class continues on the pitch too. He hadn't had many chances to shine before last weekend but got himself on the scoresheet against Everton.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side broke late in the game and Bruno Fernandes could have finished his hat-trick but unselfishly passed to his teammate, who slotted home with ease to get off the mark for his new club.
