Neymar 'unfollows Cavani on Instagram' after they clashed over set-pieces


Neymar has reportedly unfollowed Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Edinson Cavani on Instagram.

The pair clashed over set pieces at the weekend, with Neymar nicking the ball when Cavani was lining it up for a free-kick against Lyon.

The world-record signing tried to do something similar when Cavani stepped forward to take a penalty.

But the Uruguayan refused to hand it over before seeing his spot-kick saved by the opposition goalie.



Neymar’s fellow Brazilian Dani Alves was also spotted trying to help his compatriot out by shielding Cavani from the ball.

And Get French Football claims the Uruguayan reacted very badly at the end of the match.

It’s said that within 20 minutes of the final whistle, Cavani had already packed his bags and left the Parc des Princes.

He also decided to skip the mixed zone and the rest of his team by sneaking out using one of the stadium’s back entrances.

And now Neymar has responded by unfollowing Cavani on social media, which suggests there’s already trouble in paradise.

However, it seems that Unai Emery feels everything is under control as he’s NOT going to step in and sort out the situation.

He said: “I have told them to sort it out between themselves.”

Neymar is no stranger to getting things his own way and had a huge bust-up with a boss while playing for Santos in 2010.

Neymar wasn’t allowed to take a penalty during a match and threw a fit, which ended up with unlucky Dorival Junior getting the sack.
