Solskjaer explains why he keeps benching Cavani at Man Utd

Edinson Cavani will continue to play a rotational role at Manchester United, according to boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Uruguayan striker came on as a substitute in United's 2-2 draw with Leicester City on Boxing Day, setting up Bruno Fernandes for what United must have thought would be the winner.

Cavani had started the game before against Everton and scored in the Carabao Cup quarter-final win on Wednesday.

But since arriving he has only started one Premier League game in what has been an inconsistent playing spell for the former Paris Saint-Germain forward.

A groin injury also meant games against RB Leipzig, Manchester City and Sheffield United were missed.

But despite recovering from injury it seems Cavani will have to get used to his rotational role.

"Of course, Edinson has been away injured for a little while," said Solskjaer, as per the Manchester Evening News.

"He played a full game, it was a physically demanding game for him on Wednesday night at Everton, so we decided on having him on the bench. He made an impact straightaway, great pass.

"It will have to be that way for a while for him now, that he gets used to English football and the demands of this season, because it's very much stop-and-start and a game every three days.

"He made a great impact today and in the squad."
