MANCHESTER UNITED interim manager Ralf Rangnick has ruled Edinson Cavani out of Monday’s clash with Brentford.

Rangnick confirmed Cavani was “supposed” to return to training but that didn’t happen and he won’t be part of the upcoming Premier League match at Old Trafford.

The striker has been plagued with injury issues this season, which have severely limited his time on the pitch.

Rangnick said: “Edinson Cavani is supposed to come back to training [today] but, then again, the question is he has been missing for the last four or five weeks.

“Is he really a player who could then play against Brentford?’ Answer: no.”

Cavani has dealt with various knocks, tendon irritation and a groin strain since the start of the campaign.

As a result, the Uruguay international has only managed a mere 17 appearances across all competitions.

The 35-year-old striker sparked fury among Red Devils fans this term over his lack of fitness and frequent absences.

Supporters accused the ex-Paris Saint-Germain star of taking the club for a ride after reports last year he had asked to start certain matches on the bench over fitness issues.

Cavani joined United from PSG in 2020 following an impressive seven-year stint in Paris.

The Uruguayan has since amassed a total of 19 goals and seven assists in 56 appearances.

The former Napoli star’s contract runs out in June and there are very few indications suggesting he will renew ahead of incoming manager Erik ten Hag’s arrival.
