Cavani aiming to 'leave something positive behind' at Man Utd: This is important to me

Edinson Cavani admits he wants to 'leave something positive behind' at Manchester United.

The Uruguayan, 34, has impressed in his debut season with the Red Devils.

Even though it is unclear if he will stay at the club beyond this season, Cavani is hoping to have a long-term impact on his teammates.

"Honestly speaking, I don't really like to just give out advice," Cavani said in an interview with MUTV. "I'm just here to do my absolute best and to support this team and to leave everything I have out on the field, whether that's in a game or a training session.

"Then, if a young player comes up and asks me something or they see me do things during "a training session that they'd like to incorporate into their game, then that's great. I believe that there are lessons all around you, not just from players in your own position.

"You can always take the best bits from someone else and see if they work for you in your own game. If they want to take something I say or do on board and take it as an example to use in their future development, then I'd be very happy, because it's important to leave something positive behind."
