Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to ‘learn’ from new arrival Edinson Cavani.

The 33-year-old displayed his scoring instincts with two well finished efforts in a stunning 3-2 win against Southampton on Sunday.

Cavani emerged from the bench at half-time and his movement was too much for a knackered Southampton side to deal with, despite their two-goal lead.

The striker was written off by many before his arrival at Old Trafford, with some claiming it was a panic move given the Uruguay international hadn’t played for seven months.

But Ferdinand believes Cavani possesses the type of killer instinct that has been missing at Old Trafford and he’s urged the club’s other strikers to learn from the Uruguayan’s game.

‘The amount that Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial will learn off this guy and his movement alone is unbelievable,’ Ferdinand told the FIVE YouTube channel.

‘It’s worth having him just for that to improve these boys but they’ve got to be willing to learn. They’ve got to want to learn.

‘They’ve got to look at Edinson Cavani and say: ‘I want that in my game. How am I going to do that? Analysis man at the club can you give me some videos of Cavani’s movement?’

‘That’s the type of stuff you’ve got to do to improve. Self-analyse, self-reflect. Look a yourself. Who can I learn from? He’s the man.

‘Over 200 goals at PSG listen, he knows what to do. I’d be tapping into that massively.’
