MANCHESTER, England (AP) – Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani was suspended from three games by the Football Association on Thursday after using a Spanish term for blacks that he thought was intended as a loving greeting / p>

Cavani was also fined 100000 pounds (136$ 500) and had to complete personal training after admitting violating FA rules

The FA said the comment was “offensive, abusive, inappropriate and discredited the game” and was also a “serious infringement” as it was “an express or implied reference to color and / or race and / or contained “ethnic origin”

The news was posted on Instagram by the Uruguayan after scoring twice in United’s 3-2 Premier League win at Southampton in October

“While it is clear that context and intent are key factors, we note that the Independent Regulatory Commission was required to ban at least three games,” United said in a statement. “The club trusts the independent Regulatory Commission will clarify in its written reasons that Edinson Cavani is neither a racist nor that there was any racist intent in relation to his post ”

The former Paris Saint-Germain player who joined United as a free agent in October has already apologized

“Edinson Cavani was not aware that his words could be misunderstood and he sincerely apologized for the post and to anyone who was offended,” United said. “Despite his honest belief that he was just a heartfelt thank you in response to a congratulatory message sent by a close friend, he has chosen not to contest the charge out of respect and solidarity with the FA and the fight against racism in football ”
