Cavani gets 3 match ban over Instagram Post.

Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani has been given a three-match ban and a £100,000 fine for a social media post containing a Spanish phrase that is offensive in some contexts.

The post was shared on 29th November after the Man Utd vs Southampton game, and whilst the Striker advised the post was out of context, the ban was unheld.

Aswell as a 3 game ban and fine, Cavani must also complete a “face-to-face” education programme.

Cavani’s ban will begin immediately, ruling him out of United’s Premier League game with Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.

He is also set to miss the EFL Cup semi-final against Manchester City on 6 January and FA Cup third-round tie with Watford on 9 January.
