Neymar Opens Up About His Fallout With Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain Superstar Neymar Opens Up About His Fallout With Teammate Edinson Cavani

By Keegan Kruger - Apr 16, 2018 05:49 PM @KeeganKruger

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has now admitted there was a bit of tension between himself and club teammate Edinson Cavani earlier this season.

Neymar: What Messi Once Told Me At Half-Time

The South American pair were seen arguing over penalty-taking duties during a Ligue 1 fixture against Lyon in September 2017, and the former FC Barcelona forward has now revealed that, while he and the Uruguayan did have a few disagreements initially, this was all sorted out quickly, despite what the media was reporting.

"It was made to sound bigger than it really was," Neymar told Globo TV, as quoted by Sport.

"Of course, there was a certain tension, friction with Cavani, but we resolved it quickly.

"Three days after it happened, we all sat down and we talked. We're two great players, but we're also people and we had to resolve the personal side of things.

"But the reports which came out were much bigger, I think because that's what sells: people oversell the stories, talk about things they shouldn't."

The 26-year-old, who is out injured until the end of the season, has made 30 appearances for PSG this season, scoring 29 goals and assisting a further 19 strikes.

When looking at Neymar back then during his SANTOS and BARCA's time i thought there was a great leader in him to an extent that i followed him so much that i was even named after him by the few locals but since his move to PSG he proved me wrong in so many occasions to say my thoughts were wrong about him. RESPECT IS EARNED, MESSI AND CR7 earned the responsibilities on penalty duties not either way round
