Edinson Cavani says he modelled his game on Argentina legend Gabriel Bastituta

    “But yes, Batistuta was the striker who basically brought together all the attributes and everything that I liked in a player, from my point of view of how I was as a player and how I lived and appreciated the game of football, and my style of play too.

    “And yes, you tried to learn and pick up some of those attributes. If you look at him, one of the things that Batistuta had was that intuition, that ability to anticipate, to move and make a run to get rid of his marker,
    so he could get in on goal and get his header away.

    “I think there are similarities in some of my goals with many goals that he scored. But it’s true that he was the striker that I really liked and admired, because he had the ability to decide a game with his great fighting spirit, huge desire and great strength.”

    The full interview with Edinson Cavani appeared in United Review, the official matchday programme for the Liverpool game.
