Dani Alves Hits Back At Diego Forlan Over Neymar-Edinson Cavani Row
Paris Saint-Germain star Dani Alves has hit back at Diego Forlan’s recent comments on the Neymar and Edinson Cavani ordeal.
The former Manchester United striker backed his countryman Cavani after his recent spat with Neymar, insisting it also did not make sense that Dani Alves got involved.
Alves was seen taking the ball away from the two attackers as if he was going to take the free-kick, only for him to slip the ball to Neymar.
Forlan felt that the situation was not fair on his former international teammate Cavani, but Alves now responded to his comments on Twitter.
His first tweet translates to: "I don't know what game you all saw but I did not take the ball away from my teammate they took it from me."
Alves’ second tweet reads: "And just so you know, the last PSG free kick goal was scored by me... so shut your mouth and stop using my name for controversy."
Alves did indeed score PSG's only free kick goal this season, when he netted against Monaco in the French Super Cup win.
