Neymar Opens Up About His Fallout With Cavani

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."
