Edinson Cavani has been branded as a disgrace following his attitude with Manchester United this season.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has branded the Red Devils forward Edinson Cavani as a disgrace following his attitude in the final season with the club.

The former PSG player penned down a 1-year deal with the club last summer and he is set to leave on a free transfer.

Cavani endured a woeful season making just 15 appearances with seven coming has a start and finding the net just twice in the competition.

The Uruguayan was overshadowed by the arrival of Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo and the number 7 retrieved from Cavani for the sake of the former Juventus player.

Cavani almost left the club midway of the season but was persuaded by the interim manager Ralf Rangnick but went on to withdraw from certain games.

Scholes was left unimpressed by Cavani avoidance of matches, branding him a disgrace.

He told Premier League Productions: “Cavani I think was a disgrace this year, he hardly ever played. He pulled out of the Middlesbrough game because he had to travel back from wherever he was.

“Funnily enough, since that Middlesbrough game I think I heard last night United have won only five out of 18 games or something since then.

“It’s been embarrassing, this manager [Erik ten Hag] now needs backing. Who’s going to help him do that? The club upstairs is still a bit of a mess, we don’t really know.”

Scholes believed the signing of Varane would also have a positive impact on United’s campaign but the defender appears to have fallen flat.

The former midfielder revealed he was disappointed with the Frenchman’s first season at Old Trafford.

He claimed: “Do you know what, we go back to last year as well we thought Ronaldo’s coming in, Varane is coming in. You are thinking, ‘yeah, here we go’.

“Varane’s been disappointing. I think he’s got away with it a little bit. A lot of injuries, hardly played a game.”
