Cavani apologises as racially insensitive social media post being looked into by FA


The Manchester United striker wrote and then later deleted a reply on his Instagram page which can be deemed as offensive in some contexts

Edinson Cavani has apologised for a social media post which contained a Spanish term which can be interpreted as offensive as the Football Association looked into the Manchester United striker's Instagram story.

The Uruguayan posted the reply on his Instagram page on Sunday evening after he had guided Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side to victory against Southampton at St Mary’s scoring twice in the second half.

The 33-year-old was replying to a friend’s congratulatory message but deleted the post after he was made aware of how the wording could be interpreted in the UK.
