Ligue 1 By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 10/11/2017

Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar has denied claims of the rift with coach Unai Emery and Edinson Cavani, according to report.

The former Barcelona forward signed for PSG for a world record fee of €222million fee during the summer.

The Brazilian has denied all suggestions, that he had a strained relationship with Cavani, who he had a public spat with over the right to take a penalty during the game against Lyon during a Ligue 1 match.

"I'm very well in Paris, I'm happy. I'm motivated to be a player who gives everything on the pitch," Neymar told a news conference after scoring in Brazil's 3-1 win over Japan on Friday.

"Anyway, there's something that is bothering me a lot – I don't have a problem with Cavani, I don't have a problem with the coach.

"It's something that has been bothering me, I even talked about it with Tite. So I'm asking you to stop.

"I'm very realistic, I don't like rumours, I don't like stories.

"It's easier for you to hear from my mouth. I have no problem with PSG, what bothers me is the pressure of the press. I'm a guy who likes to win, I like titles and I went to PSG for this. I'm happy, I was happy when I left Barcelona and I'm happy now.

National team coach Tite offered the star forward his backing, stating that Neymar has a positive impact on the Brazil squad and is not a divisive character.

"We've been working together for a year and a half now and we've been very loyal to one another," he said.

"I'm tired of hearing: 'Tite has a problem with Neymar.' And I can talk about his character, his greatness in the dressing room.
