I Don’t Have To Be Friends With Neymar – Cavani
Edinson Cavani has said he does not need to be friends with Neymar, for the duo to perform well in tandem with each other at Paris Saint-Germain.
Both players clashed early in the season, over the taking of a penalty during a Ligue 1 game against Lyon.
Cavani insists those issues are in the past, but says that he does not need to be friends with his team-mate for them both to deliver for the French club.
“The penalty case, that’s in the past. These are things that happen in football.
“We must find the solution together and function as a team. We need to be a competitive team, but we do not need to be friends. You have to be professional, and afterwards everyone has their own life.
“To win is the most important thing so it is necessary to find the best solution for the team. That [who takes the penalties] is what the coach need to decide.
“I think the person in charge [Unai Emery] will find a solution. When he makes the decision, that will be that. Has he made his decision? I don’t think so [laughs],” he told SFR Sport ahead of their Champions League fixture against Anderlecht.
