Neymar: I Am PSG's Penalty Taker, Not Cavani

Neymar: I Am Paris Saint-Germain Penalty Taker, Not Edinson Cavani

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jan 29, 2018 08:29 AM @KurtLaduma

Superstar Neymar has commented on the recent jeers he has received from Paris Saint-Germain fans following another penalty-kick incident involving Edinson Cavani.

Messi Reveals Where Barca Have Improved Since Neymar's Exit

The Brazilian was booed in PSG's 8-0 Ligue 1 win over Dijon after he took a penalty to score his fourth goal of the match, instead of giving it to Cavani, who at the time was one goal away from becoming the club's record scorer.

While Cavani has since made history at Les Parisiens, Neymar has admitted he was hurt by the crowd's reaction.  

"Of course, I was annoyed (to be booed at), but we're here for that; to be booed, to be applauded," he said, according to the Daily Mirror.

"The manager chose me as the penalty taker and there's no problem with that.

"Everyone knows what happened in the dressing room, where the coach has decided and I have to take on the responsibility."

You need to be disciplined son if you really wanna be up there, there's no need to pick up unnecessary red cards that lead to missing some goals because of the your not playing.

Neymar realized that talent alone is not enough especially if he is to become the best player in the world....The boy is up against an allien no need to mention names as he once played alongside him.

But if the coach has instructed him to take the responsibility then you can't blame the boy for not giving cavani a Chance other than that Neymar is all about personal glory never mind his talent

Let them hate , this boy is going far. Being chosen to take penalties doesn't make him an individual glory obsessed player.
