And United legend Keane was not happy with Cavani for not loosening up before coming on the pitch for the remaining 15 minutes of the game.

Keane told Sky Sports:

"I'm intrigued when I look at warm-ups. Cavani never threw a leg, he actually didn't do a warm-up, did he?
"Then he comes on as a sub and is being asked to get them back in the game.
"Ole's talking about having to get him [Cavani] up to speed, well, sometimes it's up to the player to do something.
"Ole will pay the ultimate price, obviously.
"Ole will lose his job, walk out of this group of players, that's whats going to happen.
"I've been saying it for the last month or two, but you still think, 'you never know in this game, things might change', and you think it's up to Ole to motivate these players for Arsenal at home.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Ryan Giggs recalls when he was told by Sir Alex Ferguson that he would not play to get himself ready to face former Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack.

The Welshman claims the legendary Man United manager told him that he would cause the German midfielder nightmares when both Premier League rivals clashed.

Giggs was rested by Ferguson for three weeks because he believed he would cause Ballack all kinds of problems in midfield with his speed.
