The Uruguayan forward was on the score sheet for the losing side in the Europa League final on Wednesday
New Super Eagles star Terem Moffi has expressed his admiration for Manchester United forward Edison Cavani.
Moffi believes Cavani is a different breed of striker blessed with an elite mentality.
Cavani has been excellent for Man United since joining the side in January, scoring goals for fun and helping the Red Devils finish runner-up to rivals Man City in the just concluded English Premier League.
The former PSG man was at it again on Wednesday night when he stabbed home United’s equalising goal against Villarreal in the final of this season’s Europa League.
The Yellow Submarines, even in the absence of star winger Samuel Chukwueze, eventually triumphed 11-10 on penalties after full-time scores ended 1-1 to lift the club’s first European trophy.
But Cavani had done enough to draw out positives from Moffi.
“Cavani is different. Top mentality,” the FC Lorient star wrote on Twitter.

Likened often to Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku, Moffi enjoyed a spectacular maiden campaign in France, scoring 14 league goals to help Lorient retain their Ligue 1 status.
The former Kortrijk ace could make his international debut for Nigeria in the coming days as Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has invited him for the side’s friendly clash against Cameroon next week.
