Speaking during a press conference ahead of United’s Premier League game against Newcastle United this weekend, Solskjaer described Cavani’s gesture as a sign of respect for Ronaldo.
“Edinson has been remarkable,” praised Solskjaer.
“Cristiano spoke with Edinson and they spoke to each other. And to pass on his shirt just shows the respect he’s got for Cristiano, but also Cristiano speaking to Edinson shows the respect the other way. Two top, top professionals and players.”
