Cavani faces 3-game ban after racial Instagram post

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has been banned for three games after he made an Instagram post that contains a racially offensive language after Manchester United’s 3-2 comeback victory at St Mary’s Stadium last month.

The ban means Edinson Cavani won’t be available for selection as Manchester United plays Aston Villa, Manchester City and Watford in the coming  English Premier League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup fixtures respectively.

Adding up to his three games ban, Edinson Cavani was also fined for £100,000 after the Instagram post was reasoned as racial language by the FA Chiefs.

Edinson Cavani will also have to complete a face-to-face learning for charge that goes against FA Rule E3 in the rule book.

The Uruguay international reposted a picture from a fan on Instagram which contains a racial term after Manchester United’s 3-2 victory at Southampton. Ednison Cavani completed a brace as the comeback kings won their 9 successive premier league away games. The instagram story was removed immediately it was found racially inspired and Edinson Cavani apologised.
