Man United vs Man City: Solskjaer’s side disappointed ahead of encounter
Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted that his team is ‘disappointed’ ahead of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie with Manchester City on Wednesday night because striker, Edinson Cavani, would not take part in the clash.
Cavani is currently serving the second part of his three-game suspension.
The Uruguay international was handed the suspension and a £100,000 fine after the FA adjudged that a post containing the words “Gracias negrito” brought the game into disrepute.
The 33-year-old will also miss Man United’s Emirates FA Cup third-round clash with Watford.
“We are disappointed not having Edinson [Cavani] involved [in the Man City clash],” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.
“But he is probably the only one not [available] and, of course, Phil Jones has been out for a long time.
“They are the only two not available for selection, which is a good position to be in.”
