After the match of the tenth round of the English Premier League with Southampton (3: 2), Cavani in his Instargram responded to congratulations with the phrase Gracias negrito (literally translated as “Thank you, black”).

The post was later deleted.

“My post after Sunday's match was conceived as an affectionate greeting to a friend with gratitude for his congratulations.

The last thing I wanted was to offend someone.

I am completely against racism and deleted this post as soon as it was explained to me that it could be interpreted in different ways.

I would like to sincerely apologize for this, "- quotes the words of Cavani website" Manchester United ".

Earlier it was reported that Cavani could be disqualified for racist comment.
