The Cavani-Neymar row showing no signs of cooling down
Situation has been cooling down in the PSG dressing room after Cavani had a fall out with big money signing Neymar over set pieces.
But as per recent news, Neymar unfollowed his fellow Uruguayan team-mate on Instagram as result of the row in the weekend, where PSG notched a win over rivals Lyon. As it was an important game it seems the two stars wanted their name on the scoresheet.
However Cavani maintains that he has no issues with the Brazilian. The incidents have sparked talk of a feud inside the PSG camp, with French publication L’Equipe claiming that there was a dressing room “clash” after the Lyon game.
Cavani was quick to rubbish such talk telling Gol de Medianoche de Radio Universal: “These things are created. I don’t know why these stories are created. The truth is that these are normal things; things that happen in football.”
“I learned of the story just now talking with my brother, about people saying that Cavani won’t let anyone take penalties and that there’s a problem with Neymar. The truth is that there’s no problem.”
“He [Neymar] has just arrived and like I said from the off we are keen for him to adapt in the best way possible. I think that’s been proven because you can see he is adapting quickly.”, the Uruguayan added.
Neymar is no stranger to getting things his own way and had a huge bust-up with his boss while playing for Santos back in 2010.
Neymar wasn’t allowed to take a penalty during a match and threw a fit resulting in unlucky Dorival Junior getting the sack.
