Le Clash! Neymar and Edinson Cavani ‘Kept Apart’ by Teammates

  • South American superstars clash over who should take free-kicks.
  • Gossip that Cavani may be on his way out at PSG during the next transfer window.
  • Mbappe didn’t look very impressed!

Neymar and Edinson Cavani ‘had to be kept apart’ by their PSG team-mates following a row over a set-piece.

The two forwards, who combined cost the French giants £253million, had seemed to be striking up a great partnership after the Brazilian’s world-record move from Barcelona.

But twice the couple clashed over free kicks during the recent match against Lyon. French newspaper L’Equipe claim the row escalated after the game.

“The unease seen between Neymar and Cavani during the match against Lyon on Sunday night at the Parc des Princes continued in the dressing room,” wrote L’Equipe. “Several of their team-mates had to intervene to keep the two South Americans apart.”

It seems that despite all the money spent this summer, all is not well in the French capital among manager Unai Emery’s star-studded squad.

In contrast, Barcelona, the team Neymar left behind, is going great. Maybe there’s a connection here…
