‘No Comments’ – Non-League club prank Edinson Cavani after Manchester United striker scouted


A non-league football club have joked they have ‘no comment’ on Edinson Cavani spending time in their area at the weekend.

Cavani, 35, missed Manchester United’s goalless draw with Watford in the Premier League on Saturday through injury but was spotted at Bakewell, Derbyshire, less than 24 hours later.

Bakewell Town FC took to social media to post a picture Cavani had shared of himself in the Peak District town enjoying the sunshine on Sunday afternoon.

The club, who play in the Central Midlands Football League, joked: “The club have no comment at this time”, along with uploading photos of the Uruguay striker.

United missed Cavani in their weekend draw with Watford at Old Trafford and will hope the veteran striker will be fit for the trip to face Man City at the end of this week.

Speaking ahead of the goalless draw, caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick gave an update on Cavani and injured midfielder Scott McTominay.

“The situation is exactly the same,” Rangnick told official club media.

“He [Cavani] didn’t train with us so he won’t be available for tomorrow’s game and the same goes for Scotty.

“He’s still ill, he hasn’t trained with us, so hopefully he will start training with us again next week, but for tomorrow’s game they will both be unavailable.”
