'He Won't Change My Thinking' – Cavani On Ronaldo

Edinson Cavani has seemingly issued a strong message to his new Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, whose arrival has resulted in less playing time for the Uruguayan.

Following an impressive debut campaign, Cavani, who had been considering an exit from the club, was persuaded to sign a one-year contract extension.

Going into the 2021/22 season, he might have been forgiven for thinking he was set to lead the line for the Red Devils, but Ronaldo's stunning return to England appears to have impacted his playing time.

In a recent interview, the 34-year-old admitted that all he can do is be ready for his chance and that Ronaldo's desire to feature every minute will not change the way he is thinking.

"Those are things that happen, a lot of debate is created, but football is football and you don't have to turn it around too much, it's not because one or the other is there," Cavani recently told El Observador.

"The important thing is to be prepared for when it's your turn, you always want to play, (Ronaldo) he wants to be there forever, but that is not going to change my way of thinking or acting.

"In football, you have to always be ready. It's one of the keys at the top level. Sometimes you play more, sometimes you play less, managers make decisions, but that doesn't stop the work to always be competitive.

"The league has just started and I have needed to be, not quite like last year, but I'm there to be a part of it."

Here is how Ronaldo's weekly salary compares to Cavani's in England:
