Neymar vs. Edinson Cavani row

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani takes the ball off Neymar before missing his penalty during his side's 2-0 win over Lyon

Paris Saint-Germain's mega-money project has hit an early snag as two of their star players have reportedly become embroiled in a row over who should be the penalty taker.

A 2-0 win over Lyon was marred by the incident, which saw £200m world-record summer signing Neymar try to take the spot-kick duties off his fellow South American.

Cavani won the argument, but saw his subsequent penalty saved and the two players reportedly needed to be kept apart by teammates in the dressing room as they continued their heated debate after the match.

Speculation has surfaced suggesting that Neymar has gone as far as to demand that PSG sell Cavani, who had scored in every game of the season prior to the match in question.
