Cavani suspended 3 games for a racist word


“A comment posted on the #Manchester #United striker’s #Instagram profile was insulting, abusive, inappropriate and undermined the game (…). The post also constitutes an + aggravated offense + (…) because it included a reference, express or implied, to color and / or race and / or ethnic origin, “said the FA in a statement posted on its website.

The #Uruguayan international is also sanctioned with a fine of 100,000 pounds sterling (111,000 euros) and will have to undergo training.

#In response to a congratulatory message sent to him by a friend after his decisive double in #Manchester #United’s victory at #Southampton (3-2), #Cavani wrote “#Gracias negrito” (“thank you little black”).

#After deleting the message, the former PSG scorer apologized and the #Red #Devils defended him by explaining that the word had been used with friendly intent, and that it had a different connotation in #South #America.

These explanations were not enough to prevent him from being suspended. “#He chose not to appeal the decision, out of respect and solidarity with the FA and the fight against racism in football,” #Manchester #United said in a statement.

“The club hope that the independent disciplinary commission will make it clear in its written reasons that #Edinson #Cavani is not racist and that there was no racist intention in relation to his message,” said + #Man U +.

#Due to his suspension, #Cavani will not be able to play in the #Premier #League game against #Aston #Villa on #Friday. #He will also miss the #League #Cup semi-final against #Manchester #City and the FA #Cup third round against #Watford.
