Emery Tells Neymar and Cavani to Resolve Penalty Issues Between Themselves
Paris Saint Germain boss Unai Emery has told Neymar and Edinson Cavani to resolve their issues over penalty taking responsibilities amongst themselves. The pair quarrelled over a second half penalty in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Lyon.
Cavani prevailed in the debate, but went on to miss the penalty. Neymar also appeared to take a first half free-kick ahead of the Uruguayan too. PSG boss Emery has told the players to sort it out between themselves.
“I have told them to sort it out between themselves. I think that they are capable of doing that and that they will both be our kickers. If they cannot reach an agreement, I will decide for them. I do not want this to become a problem for us."
Meanwhile, right-back Dani Alves was pleased with the resolve the Parisian side showed to win the game, “The Lyon team were very fast and this complicated matters. They positioned themselves well and closed us down well. However, we achieved our goal by winning.
“We put in a team performance. We hope to keep doing that. It was tough. Lyon knew what they had to do. They closed the game down and left little space to exploit.
“We committed a few mistakes in the first half. We were not pressing that well and Lyon were well and truly in the match. In the second half, we did better, our positioning was better. I feel we deserved to win."
