Things were going so well for Neymar after his €222 million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite the pressure of being the world’s most expensive footballer, Neymar has scored five goals in six matches.

But the honeymoon period is well and truly over and it all ended last weekend during their 2-0 victory against Lyon.

Neymar and strike partner Edinson Cavani argued over who would take a free-kick and a penalty and, according to the reports, the squabble continued in the dressing room afterward.

And it was also reported that Neymar demanded that the club sell Cavani after the saga.

Neymar hasn’t played since after complaining of a foot injury, missing PSG’s clash against Montpellier at the weekend.

But the Brazilian is back in the squad for their Champions League clash against Bayern Munich. The 25-year-old has been seen back in training and it’ll be interesting to see him and Cavani on the same pitch once again.

But before that, Neymar had to fend off another teammate in training.

Some of you may remember when Neymar was attempting to tie his laces last season and Luis Suarez kicked the ball that his foot was resting on. It left Neymar off balance as he reacted angrily to the mischievous Suarez.

And something very similar happened in training before their clash with Bayern.

Neymar was doing his laces once again and compatriot Thiago Silva was next to him.

Silva was probably well aware of what Suarez did last year and was very tempted to do the same himself.

However, after teasing Neymar, he decided against it.

It looks like he was a little bit too scared to get on the wrong side of Neymar after his recent clash with Cavani - and we don’t blame him.

Incidentally, it was reportedly Silva had stepped between Neymar and Cavani as the pair went head-to-head in the changing room after their argument with the defender protecting his countryman.

He's clearly looking out for Neymar and doesn't want to annoy him any further.
