Cavani Talks About His Penalty Dispute With Neymar

Edinson Cavani Talks About His Penalty Dispute With Neymar

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 19, 2017 08:00 PM @KurtLaduma

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has broken his silence over his penalty dispute with Brazilian superstar Neymar on the weekend.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the incidents from Sunday night!

In PSG's match against Lyon on Sunday night, Cavani and Neymar appeared to clash more than once over a dead-ball situation, with some reports even claiming that their spat continued long after the Ligue 1 clash was over.

However, the Uruguayan has since insisted there are no issues between himself and the former FC Barcelona attacker.

"These are things pinned up. I do not know why we create all these stories. The truth is that these are normal things that happen in football," Cavani told Gol de Medianoche.

"I heard about it when I talked to my brother, that people say that Cavani does not let penalties go or that there is a problem with Neymar.

"The truth is that there is no problem. Neymar has just arrived. He will surely be seen more and more. We, as I said from the beginning, have all the good will to adapt to the best.

"I think we found that it was adapting quickly."

@Stnydo, I really agree with your remark. Neymar has just arrived and he has to relax and wait and see if his team-mates will consider/recognise him as their new set-pieces taker. As it stands, Cavani is the team's dead ball taker NOT new comer; Neymar. You dont arrive in the family and go straight to the kitchen and serve yourself, you chill and they will attend you.

In my view from this situation of PSG players, I dont think Neymar has a right to take dead balls, he has just arrived. It looks like before Neymar's arrival, Cavani was or is the only PSG players who takes on the dead balls. Neymar MUST just relax and wait for the family of PSG to give him the right to do this and that, I think there's a serious problem.

I think Neymar must chill coz he is new in this team, what if mpappe does the same thing to him will he be happy.... just because he is a Brazilian and most expensive player doesn't mean he must undermine the managers decision to chose set piece takers including penalties
