Edinson Cavani over the years has made many defenders dance behind him and this already has a reason, he teaches ballet lessons.
The Uruguayan striker scored seven goals for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, a not bad number for a 34-year-old who joined Manchester United last summer.
As it is known, Cavani joined the ballet club “Ballet Nacional de Sodre” in Uruguay after breaking the contract with Paris Saint-Germain in the last edition.
Until passing the challenge against Real Sociedad, Chelsea could be the next opponent who can try the powerful fingers of the striker.
The Blues will host United for the challenge taking place on Sunday from 17:30 at Stamford Bridge.
Senior ballet physiotherapist Luke Abnett believes dancers are much stronger than football fans can give them value and believes Cavan’s success is partly about his new passion.
He told the Irish Times: “Pound by pound, dancers are the strongest athletes you will find.”
“In ballet, there needs to be not only movement strength but movement accuracy. “It’s a combination of strong movement muscles with balance adjustment endurance muscles.”
“When you reach the most advanced levels of ballet skills, you are working on jumping, turning, pirouette, control and rotation.”
“Sitting in an interesting position and transferring your weight as you move to the next step – all of this would apply to such situations.”
With discipline also helpful in reducing muscle injuries, it can make Cavani stay at United for a while. /Telegraph/
