Edinson Cavani, Manchester United’s star striker has disclosed why he chooses to celebrate his goals by assuming to fire a bow-and-arrow.

The hugely talented and experienced forward who has previous spells at Palmero, Napoli, and PSG joined United as a free agent.

Since arriving in Manchester, Cavani has hit the ground running and plying his trade in the illustrious Premier League.

United found themselves go 1-0 down inside the match’s opening 10-minutes, however, Scott Parker was forced to watch on as Cavani levelled proceedings just before the half-time whistle.

Cavani’s vital equaliser saw the South American reenact his iconic bow-and-arrow style celebration.

Speaking after the match, the 33-year-old has spilled the beans on why he’s chosen the iconic archery as his trademark celebration.

“It’s a bit of a long story,” the 33-year-old told on official club site. “and it’s kind of wrapped up in our country’s history and the indigenous population, the Charrúas.”

“When my little daughter, India, was born, her name is just a small reference to our native Uruguayans, the Charrúas.”

“So that arrow that I take out and then fire, is a goal celebration that sort of encapsulates all these things: a mix of my daughter’s name and the indigenous peoples of my country.”

“It has a special meaning, but like you say, Eric reminded me of it, even though at the end of each celebration, I always make sure I take out the arrow and fire it.”
