Edinson Cavani Instagram post to be investigated by the FA

Manchester United star Edinson Cavani could face three-game ban over social media post

Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani, from Manchester United, apologized this Monday for writing a message on his social networks that the English Football Federation (FA) is going to investigate to determine if it is a racist comment.

In the post which has since been deleted, the words "gracias negrito!" are used to thank a follower congratulating Cavani on his performance in the match at St. Mary's.

Cavani deleted the post after he was made aware that the word "negrito" is interpreted differently in the United Kingdom, as opposed to his homeland where it is used as a term of endearment between friends.

"I am completely opposed to racism and deleted the message as soon as it was explained that it can be interpreted differently".

"The last thing I want is to offend anyone ..." The case is similar to what happened on social media between Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy after the former used a "black" cartoon to tease Mendy. "I want to sincerely apologize for all this", added the footballer, who arrived this season at Old Trafford from Paris Saint-Germain.

The FA introduced an edict prior to the 2020/21 season that any sanctions pertaining to racism would occasion a minimum three game ban.

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva and Tottenham Hotspur's Dele Alli, both were suspended for one match each after social media posts that breached the guidelines.

United also comment on the controversial message, saying: "It is clear to us that there was absolutely no malicious intent behind Edinson's message and he deleted it as soon as he was informed that it could be misconstrued".

The Uruguayan, coming off the bench, scored two goals in the comeback that his team, Manchester United, led against Southampton in a Premier game played this Sunday (3-2).
