Troy Deeney insists Edinson Cavani deserves MORE than a three-game ban for controversial 'negrito' Instagram post after win over Southampton as he calls for the Manchester United striker to be 'educated' by the FA on why 'these words hurt people'
Troy Deeney has insisted a three-game ban is not enough for Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani after he posted a Spanish term with racial connotations on social media on Sunday.
Cavani came off the bench to score a brace and hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side a dramatic 3-2 win at Southampton.
But the Uruguayan striker's heroics at St Mary's were overshadowed when he posted a controversial Spanish term on social media in the hours that followed.

Cavani's post translates to 'thanks black' as he appeared to respond to a congratulatory post.
The Uruguayan striker, pictured arriving for training Monday morning, is facing an FA probe.
In response to a message of congratulations, seemingly from a friend, Cavani said:
'Gracias negrito.' The term, which makes reference to race, translates directly as 'Thanks black'.
