Neymar, Edinson Cavani Reportedly Separated in PSG Dressing Room After Lyon Game

Paris Saint-Germain forwards Edinson Cavani and Neymar were reportedly prevented from coming to blows by club captain Thiago Silva in the dressing room after their 2-0 win over Lyon on Sunday.  

The duo were involved in an on-field disagreement over who should take a penalty during the contest, with Cavani eventually taking the kick. They also appeared to clash over who should take other set pieces during the game, with Dani Alves smuggling the ball to Neymar away from Cavani at one stage.

According to L'Equipe (h/t Get French Football News), the pair were then involved in an angry exchange in the dressing room after the fixture:

According to Alex Richards of the Daily Mirror, Cavani, who didn't get involved in the team's post-match celebrations, told Neymar he was not impressed with his attitude after the game. The pair are then said to have squared up, before Silva and Marquinhos intervened.

Cavani then left the dressing room earlier than the rest of his team-mates and was pictured departing through a back door instead of going through the mixed zone.
