Neymar Vs Cavani: Dani Alves speaks up

Neymar Vs Cavani: Dani Alves speaks up

19 Sep 2017, 11:30

PSG's most recent victory in Ligue 1 was marred by controversy as the media and fans alike claimed there was discontent between the Paris club's front-line.

During the game, for both a free-kick and penalty, Neymar and Cavani seemed to argue about who should take the set-pieces.

Dani Alves was also involved in the free-kick debate, but has denied keeping the ball away from Edinson Cavani so that he could give it to his Brazilian compatriot Neymar:

-I was going to take it. I took the ball to take the free-kick, because I already scored some goals and I was confident of a repeat. I think the individual is the least important thing, in the end the team is above any individual, he said.

Clearly the PSG defender claims that he planned to take the set-piece himself, which would further add to the argument that there is discontent in the PSG ranks, with Neymar stealing the ball off Alves to take the free-kick.

In addition to the free-kick, the same pair Neymar and Cavani argued over who would take a penalty, with the latter then seeing his spot-kick saved. PSG eventually won the match, despite the set-piece controversy, thanks to two own goals from their opposition on the night, Lyon.
