Cavani "has no problem" with Neymar


Edinson Cavani says "has no problem" with his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Neymar despite the pair's on-field row against Lyon.

Uruguay striker Cavani and Brazil forward Neymar argued over which of them would take a second-half free kick in Sunday's 2-0 Ligue Un win over Lyon at the Parc des Princes, a row which was finally resolved when Dani Alves took the ball from Cavani and gave it to his international team-mate.

Cavani later saw a penalty saved by Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes, and there was reportedly an argument in the dressing-room between the PSG forward pair over who should take set-pieces.

The French media are reporting on Friday morning that Neymar has apologised to his team-mates for his role in the incident, and Cavani is also keen to draw a line under the row.

"I learned of the story just now talking with my brother, about people saying that Cavani won't let anyone take penalties and that there's a problem with Neymar,'" Cavani told Uruguayan radio station Gol de Medianoche de Radio Universal.

"The truth is that there's no problem

"He [Neymar] has just arrived and like I said from the off we are keen for him to adapt in the best way possible. 

"I think that's been proven because you can see he is adapting quickly."

In other PSG news, Neymar's  former Barcelona teammate Jeremy Mathieu says the Brazilian made the  €222 million move to PSG in order to win the Ballon d'Or.

"No one expected him to leave, but it's a choice you have to respect," Sporting Lisbon midfielder Mathieu told RMC.

"I think he left Barcelona to try to win the Ballon d'Or, because he was a little bit second to Leo Messi there. It was difficult for him there, and that's why I think he left.

"I think he'll have more chance of winning it in Paris than Barcelona. But it'll be up to him to score goals, win trophies and try to help Paris win the Champions League."
