Zidane Comments On Neymar-Cavani Row
Zinedine Zidane Comments On Neymar-Edinson Cavani Row
With the penalty row between the world's most expensive player, Neymar, and his teammate Edinson Cavani making the headlines all over, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has now commented on the incident.
The Brazilian and his Paris Saint-Germain colleague clashed over a number of set-pieces during their side's 2-0 win over Olympique Lyon on the weekend, with Cavani missing a penalty after Neymar had requested to take the spot-kick.
While PSG coach Unai Emery suggested the players should decide who takes set-pieces, Zidane has insisted that, at Real Madrid, there is a clear pecking order.
"We prepare for the games and we know who takes corners and penalties," he said, as quoted by Marca.
"But I won't talk about PSG, I'm only worried about my team."
Los Blancos have equalled the longstanding scoring record of Pele's Santos team, who netted in 73 consecutive games between 1961 and 1963, and could go one better when they face Real Betis at home on Wednesday night.
The game will see superstar Cristiano Ronaldo return to the squad after he missed the first four La Liga games of the campaign due to suspension. The Portuguese has scored three goals in three appearances for Real this season, and will be hoping to open his La Liga account against Betis.
