The 37-year-old, who signed for Boca Juniors in the summer, was ghosting around in the box when the ball was floated towards him from the right side.

Using some imagination the former Uruguay international leapt off the ground and stunned the Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades with a brilliant bicycle kick.

The goal put Boca Juniors 2-0 up with Cavani also the scorer of the opening goal of the game.

Man United fans caught wind of the individual brilliance and took to social media to vent their frustrations at Cavani no longer plying his trade at Old Trafford.

One wrote: “I still miss him everyday. Cristiano’s return deprived us the opportunity to witness his greatness. Good to say we failed him.”

While another added: “If we integrated Cavani and Ronaldo in the 11 properly. we would’ve been a treble-worthy squad.”

A third commented: “We should have kept this guy at United!”

And a fourth suggested he would be useful to have around the club as a mentor to £72m man Rasmus Hojlund.

They wrote: “He could still be at Man Utd. He’d be a perfect back up for Højlund, who would be learning from the best.”

Cavani spent two seasons with United from 2020 to 2023 making 59 appearances and scoring 19 goals in the process.

The club now put their faith in Hojlund who arrived from Atalanta in the summer.

The 21-year-old has netted 13 goals and registered two assists in his first 31 games for the Manchester giants during what has been a turbulent campaign for Erik ten Hag‘s side.
