Neymar takes Cavani's role at PSG - FCNaija

Ligue 1 By: Ayodeji Tunde | 19/11/2017

Edinson Cavani has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery has taken penalty duties from him and handed same to Neymar for the time being.

Cavani and Neymar had a well-reported on-field spat earlier this season during the 2-0 win over Lyon, as Neymar was made to step aside and watch his teammate miss from 12 yards.

There is little risk of a repeat incident the next time PSG are awarded a spot kick, however, with the Brazil international being given the nod to take the next one.

"The coach has decided that Neymar will take the next penalty," Cavani told reporters following his side's 4-1 victory against Nantes.

Neymar has reportedly grown upset at the Parc des Princes, just three months after arriving from Barcelona in a record-breaking deal worth £198m.
