Man Utd striker Cavani reveals Uruguay injury trip

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has confirmed he's recovering from a tendon injury.

The centre-forward last played for United against Atalanta in the Champions League last month and he was subsequently ruled out of the Manchester derby after that game. He was also forced to pull out of Uruguay's squad across the international break.

Cavani has been suffering from an ongoing tendon problem all season and he reflected on his recovery over the last few weeks.

"During this period of the international break, I've had the chance to stop and focus on this niggling injury that I'm feeling in the tendon in my leg," Cavani told United's website.

"So I can speed up my recovery and come back quickly and be available for my club and national team.

"So, during this time, I was able to spend a few days in Uruguay, do some fitness and recovery work and stuff and, in turn, I managed to see my family at the same time, which is always important, to see your family and be close to them."
