Everyone is just getting over Neymar and Edinson Cavani’s furious bust-up.

The two were at loggerheads when Paris Saint-Germain were awarded a penalty against Lyon.

Neymar wanted to take it, Cavani said no, and the Brazilian kicked up a fuss.

Yet it was clear that the two had cleared the air during PSG’s 3-0 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last month.

Neymar always insisted that the feud was blown out of proportion by the media.

"They invent a lot of stories," the 25-year-old, who arrived in a £198 million deal from Barcelona, said, per ESPN.

“They talk too much. They speak about things that they have no clue about. They try to infiltrate the dressing room and end up claiming things that do not exist."


Neymar was involved in Emery bust-up

So the whole Neymar and Cavani thing is in the past. But rumours coming out of France claim the Brazil star was involved in another bust-up with someone far more influential than Cavani: PSG boss Unai Emery.

According to French sports daily L’Equipe, Neymar and Emery clashed in training on Friday.

Emery decided to split up his players into two groups. One included those who played in the Champions League game against Anderlecht on Friday, while the players who didn’t feature were in the second group.

The first group that included Neymar, who played 90 minutes in the 4-0 win, was told by Emery to finish training early, presumably with an eye to Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash against Marseille.

Neymar wanted to continue training, though, and he let out his anger by throwing a ball at a wall.

“At first, we wondered if he was joking,” a witness wondered about Neymar. Apparently he wasn’t.

Neymar is causing problems at PSG

We’ll surely learn more about the situation when PSG travel to Marseille on Sunday. If the reports are true, Emery could punish Neymar by leaving him out of the starting line-up.

It should probably be of concern to PSG’s Qatari owners that Neymar has been at the club for a matter of months and is reportedly involved in his second feud.

If Neymar and Emery really are at it, though, it’s bad news for the PSG boss. Between them both, the owners would always choose the man they made the world’s most expensive footballer in history.
