Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani risks facing sanctions from the Football Association after allegedly using a racially offensive term in a social media post.
This is coming after his heroic display in the clubs last premier league outing.
Celebrating the match 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******”.
Despite him deleting the post, he still risks being sanctioned by the Football Association.
The term Cavani used is the same Uruguay co-star Luis Suarez is said to have used during his altercation with Patrice Evra in October 2011, which resulted in the former Liverpool star being fined £40,000 and banned for eight matches.
The incident has sparked some reaction from some Liverpool fans in particular, which has led to fierce debate on social media.
It remains to be seen whether this incident will be investigated by either Manchester United, the Premier League or Football Association.
