Star striker Edinson Cavani of Manchester United has revealed why he likes to celebrate his goals by pretending to shoot a bow-and-arrow.
As a free agent, the tremendously talented and experienced forward who has previous spells at Palmero, Napoli and PSG joined United.
Cavani has hit the ground running since arriving in Manchester and plying his trade in the illustrious Premier League.
Cavani’s latest on-field goalscoring heroics came on Wednesday as the Red Devils faced off against Fulham, after already bagging four goals in his first four Premier League starts.
In the opening 10 minutes of the match, United found themselves going 1-0 down, but Scott Parker was forced to watch as Cavani leveled proceedings just before the half-time whistle.
The crucial equalizer of Cavani saw the South American reenact his famous celebration of bow and arrow form.
The 33-year-old, speaking after the match, lifted the lid on why he chose the legendary archery as his marquee celebration.
“It’s a very long story and it’s sort of wrapped up in the history of our nation and the Charrúas, the indigenous population,” said the 33-year-old on the official club website.
“It’s just a small reference to our native Uruguayans, the Charrúas, when my little girl, India, was born. So that arrow that I take out and then shoot, is a target celebration that encapsulates all of these things: a mixture of the name of my daughter and the indigenous people of my land.
It has a special meaning, but as you say, Eric reminded me of it, although I always make sure I take the arrow out and fire it at the end of each celebration.”
