'Gracias n******' - Cavani risks ban over race comment

Edinson Cavani may be the subject of an investigation from the Football Association after allegedly using a racially offensive term in a social media post.

The Manchester United striker came off the bench to fire his side to a 3-2 win against Southampton on Sunday.

The Red Devils were 2-0 down when the Uruguay international came off the bench for the second half and set up Bruno Fernandes to pull one back before heading in two of his own to seal the three points deep in stoppage time.

The 33-year-old shared some of the positive messages he received from fans in the wake of the victory and responded to one post with the message “Gracias n******”.

Cavani has since deleted the post.
