The PSG boss wants to leave it up to his star duo to decide on the spot-kick duties, but he will intervene if necessary

PSG continued their 100 per cent start to the Ligue 1 season with a 2-0 victory at home against Lyon thanks to a pair of own goals, a result somewhat overshadowed by the disagreement between their star Latin maestros.

Cavani and €222 million arrival Neymar quarrelled over a penalty in the 79th minute — the Uruguayan eventually winning the argument with his new team-mate only to be denied by the bar.

PSG head coach Emery said he wants to leave it up to Cavani and Neymar to decide on the spot-kick duties but he will intervene if necessary.

“The penalties are to be struck by a few players, one is Cavani and the other is Neymar,” Emery said.

“It takes a gentleman’s agreement on the ground to hit the penalties.

“Afterwards, we will arrange internally for the penalties that are coming in, because I think both are able to score them, and I want the two to alternate in this exercise.

“If there is no agreement, I will decide. I do not want it to be a problem for us.”

Can PSG resolve these issues? Such will be the questions before the Ligue 1 giants would try to re-establish their dominance in France and also challenge for the European glory.
