Mbappe Comments On Neymar-Cavani Clash

Paris Saint-Germain sensation Kylian Mbappe has commented on Neymar and Edinson Cavani's clash during a recent friendly between Brazil and Uruguay.

The 19-year-old, who plays alongside the two PSG forwards at club level, downplayed the run-in between his two colleagues on Friday last week.

"I sent Neymar a video of his clash with Edinson via WhatsApp and he just laughed in response, so that says it all," Mbappe said, as quoted by ESPN.

"It was nothing, it was a duel and they were defending their countries. They both gave everything, which you have to do when you go for the ball, and contact is a part of the game – that is all.

"This will not stop them from hugging and making up at PSG and then scoring goals together once we are back with PSG. There is no problem."

Both Cavani and Neymar have already commented on the incident, which saw them at loggerheads after the Uruguayan was booked for a foul on the Brazilian during the Selecao's 1-0 win.

"Things happen on the pitch that raise the temperature, but we reflect after the match and things go back to normal," Cavani explained, while Neymar asked: "What did (Cavani) say? He said nothing. Either that, or I did not hear what he said."
