Given that they’ve won every single game so far this season you’d think the PSG changing room would have a party atmosphere.
However, it seems the Parcs des Princes has the feel of a UFC cage more than anything.
L’Equipe are reporting that Neymar and Edinson Cavani nearly came to blows after the final whistle on Sunday night.
The pair twice argued about who should take a set-piece during PSG’s 2-0- win over Lyon in Ligue 1.
First Cavani was unable to get the ball off Dani Alves for a free-kick before the right-back passed it to fellow Brazilian Neymar.
Then it was the Uruguayan’s turn to pull rank.
Cavani rejected Neymar’s plea to let him take a penalty and then confounded the problem by failing to convert the spot-kick.
Reports from France suggest that Thiago Silva was forced to separate the two quarrelling forwards in the changing room as tensions rose further.
It is believed that Cavani criticised Neymar’s attitude, something he’s not alone in, which prompted the former Barcelona forward to square up to his team-mate.
Cavani then left the stadium and was spotted in the car park approximately 20 minutes after the final whistle having decided against walking through the mixed zone, as is customary.
Neymar has since unfollowed PSG’s No9 on Instagram which has done nothing to ease much-publicised friction between the two.
As well as the free-kick and penalty disputes, there was more evidence of disharmony between the pair on the pitch.
PSG’s two most threatening players only exchanged two passes during the game, both from Neymar to Cavani, and the pair were noticeably frosty towards one another even during the celebrations.
Superstars of the game tend to tow sizeable egos along with them.
Unai Emery must play ringmaster if he is too keep his two premier players under control.
