Maguire urge strikers to watch and learn from Cavani

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has heaped praise on striker Edinson Cavani after his brace helped United to a 3-2 win over Southampton.

Cavani was introduced in the second half of the game and assisted Bruno Fernandes goal before coming up with a brace of his own and according to Maguire, the club strikers should watch and learn from the Uruguayan if they want to be best.

"I am so pleased for him. He has been without a club for a few months so he is coming in and catching up.

"He is a great professional, he is great to have around the place, he is great in the dressing room and I think you saw today what he brings to the club. His movement when the ball is wide is to a level that not many strikers can reach.

"He is always on the move, always getting across people and that's why he has always scored goals. So if there are any strikers out here wanting to learn and watch, I am sure they are studying his movement and what he has done in his career.

"He is great for our strikers to learn from him in training because he is a nightmare to mark in training as well. Every day he is making those runs across you and we have seen today his movement is very, very good," Maguire told MUTV.
