Following their clash over who should take a late penalty during Sunday's Ligue 1 game, Neymar has apologised to his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates for rowing with Edinson Cavani during last week's win over Lyon.

Cavani missed from 12 yards and L'Equipe reported that the pair had to be separated by team-mates in the changing room after the match. And the French paper now claim the Brazilian has apologised to the PSG squad following the row.

Manager Unai Emery revealed on Thursday that both Neymar and Cavani would be trusted to take penalties. But the Spaniard refused to reveal who was his preferred choice.

Cavani has since sought to play down the disagreement claiming that he has 'no problem' with his new team-mate, who arrived from Barcelona this summer for £198million.

“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.

“The truth is that there's no problem,' Cavani told Uruguayan radio station Gol de Medianoche de Radio Universal.

“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.”
