Expressing his emotions to the crowd, Cavani shared his journey from a young aspiring player to standing where he is today. He spoke about the fulfillment of being at Boca Juniors after many years of dedicating himself to the sport, and how he is relishing this opportunity while enjoying it alongside his family.

What did Cavani say

“Well, I wanted to return close to home, and I believe that there is no country that is more similar to ours than Argentina, and I believe that there is no club like Boca to come to make the last steps of my career.

The desire to play will always be the same. Surely today I am not 25 years old, but I am 36 and I have covered many miles, and that often counts in a football player. What I am sure of is that I am going to train and prepare myself every day 100% as I have always done in my career, to be able to be ready for when I have to go out on the field, and defend this shirt as if I were a lifelong fan. I always did that, everywhere I’ve played.

I want to thank them first of all, because right now I can’t wait to go out and meet them, greet them. And as I said before, hopefully we can go a long way and live together experiences and beautiful moments, triumphs and things that I know that this club is used to living.”

While Cavani has faced challenges with muscular injuries in recent times, having played only 28 matches and scoring seven goals for Valencia, his track record speaks for itself. He has represented Uruguay in the last four editions of the World Cup, amassing an impressive tally of 58 goals in 136 appearances for the national team.

With Cavani’s arrival, Boca Juniors and their passionate supporters have high hopes for a successful campaign in their pursuit of the Copa Libertadores title.

Time will tell how the addition of this experienced striker will shape the team’s future, but for now, the focus remains on the excitement and anticipation surrounding his presence at the club.
