“Misunderstanding”: Cavani regrets racist tweet


Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani apologized for using a Spanish term for black people (“negrito”) in an Instagram post. The Uruguayan said on Monday that this was intended as a loving greeting, he was against all racism. England’s FA are currently investigating Post Cavanis after scoring twice in their team’s 3-2 win in Southampton on Sunday.

“The last thing I wanted to do was offend anyone,” wrote Cavani. “I am totally against racism and deleted the message when it became clear it could be interpreted differently.” United said Cavani had been informed that his message was “misinterpreted” and viewed as a derogatory label.

The rules of the FA provide for a ban of at least three games for racist comments. United also defended Cavani because the word “negrito” has a different meaning in South America than in Great Britain.
