Edinson Cavani steps up to clarify incident with Neymar

The Uruguayan striker and the most expensive player in the world apparently had disagreements during PSG's game vs Lyon, prompting controversy from fans.
Ligue 1 giants PSG encountered the first setback to having a multi-talented cast of players, as Neymar and Edinson Cavani apparently argued over who would take a penalty kick and a free kick during the game Les Parisiens won against Olympique Lyon.

Reports even claimed that Neymar had unfollowed Cavani on Instagram after this incident, which prompted the clueless Uruguayan striker to clarify all rumors.

Speaking to Radio Universal's "Gol de Medianoche", Cavani denied having a bad relationship with the Brazilian ace, hinting that their discussion is an everyday thing on a football pitch.

"I don't know why people make things up. These things happen in football day in and day out. I found out about this after talking to my brother, when people started saying that I wouldn't let him take a PK, and if there was a problem between us. Let me tell you right now: there are no issues between us," Cavani said.

The Uruguayan striker went on to describe how the team feels about Neymar's arrival, and how he expects his addition contributes to the team winning major trophies this season.

"He (Neymar) just got here, and I'm sure we'll get to know each other better. I said it when he joined the team, we feel a positive vibe with him around, and we want him to feel comfortable around us. He's getting settled among us and that's a good thing," Cavani concluded.

PSG will face a new home game this weekend, when they host Bordeaux at Parc Des Princes. Let's see who takes the next penalty PSG is awarded...
