Manchester United’s man of the moment Paul Pogba has said Edinson Cavani is one the best strikers in the world.
The 33-year-old Cavani completed a questionable move on deadline day in July last year as a free agent, and has so far answered his critics with five goals and two assists in 17 appearances for which the majority were as a substitute.
"Everybody knows that Edi is a top-class striker and there's few strikers like this in the world, and we had the chance to have one," Pogba told MUTV, as quoted by Soccer Laduma.
"We know the hardest goals are those goals. We have talented players – Anthony Martial, Rashy in front, even Mason (Greenwood), that they can shoot from outside and stuff – but they don't have this, the experience of Edi, and they don't have the same quality of Edi as well.
"So I think we complete each other with the players we have in front and Edi can obviously show his class like he did today.
"Those goals that we needed, at the right time, he's always there at the right time and the right moment to help the team to win,” concluded the 27-year-old Frenchman.
Meanwhile, Cavani is expected to start as United host Liverpool in an FA Cup fourth round clash on Sunday.
