Neymar-Cavani penalty spat a ‘war of egos

Brazil’s media on Monday dubbed the spat
between Paris Saint -Germain stars Neymar and
Edinson Cavani over who should take a
penalty kick during their victory against Lyon
“a war of egos .”

Newspapers in Brazil , always hungry for
Neymar news , dived into the tussle in which
the recently signed PSG superstar tried to take
the ball from his Uruguayan teammate on
Sunday. Cavani kept the ball but had his shot
saved in what was ultimately a 2 -0 win .

“Neymar and Cavani argue again,” O Dia’ s
headline read, referring to another penalty
incident during PSG’s 6 -2 win over Toulouse on
August 20 — Neymar’ s first home game with
the French side after transferring from

“The result allowed Neymar’ s team to remain
leaders but what caught the attention was the
poor understanding between the Brazilian and
Cavani, ” O Globo daily said.
Ledio Carmona, a commentator for Sport TV ,
which broadcasts Ligue 1 games , said Neymar
risks estranging himself from his new
teammates if he keeps “playing selfishly. ”
“I think this throws a bit of a shadow , it shows
an overly individualistic side. If other
situations like this happen the situation could
degrade,” he told AFP.
Globoesporte. com went further, calling it a
“war of egos .”
“It ’s clear these two players don’t get on ,” the
site said.
