PSG Fans Angry With Neymar For Denying Cavani Chance To Make Club History

Some sections of the home fans whistled at world’s most expensive player Neymar after he denied strike-partner Edison Cavani the chance to become Paris Saint-Germain’s recorder goalscorer in their 8-0 thrashing of Dijon on Wednesday night.

Neymar hit his first PSG hat-trick as the Ligue 1 leaders ran riot and also provided a pair of assists in a glittering individual performance, but he was involved in another on-pitch disagreement with strike partner Edinson Cavani.

Neymar also provided a pair of assists in a glittering individual performance, but he was involved in another on-pitch disagreement with strike partner Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan headed in PSG’s third goal of the night to draw level with the club’s record goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic on 156 in all competitions.

But when Cavani won a late penalty with the score at 7-0 and Neymar having already wrapped up his hat-trick, the former Barcelona man denied his colleague the chance to surpass Ibrahimovic.

The Parc des Princes crowd chanted for Cavani to take the kick and Neymar was whistled after he stepped up to convert from 12 yards prompting whistles from across the stands.

Coach Unai Emery tried to play down the incident, claiming there will be many more games for Cavani to reach his milestone.

“Cavani, he is our goalscorer, he improved a lot, his individual statistics help the team and the team help him get his goals,” Emery said.

“Neymar hit the penalty kick and he [Cavani] will have other chances to score more goals. The team is better with Neymar. All wins and stats are made to benefit the whole team.”

    n DAT z y I don’t like neymar,nice footballer ,team player but just very selfish.future ball on d’ore willed sha.in a league of his own

  • commenting for football sake, this aspect of Neymar’s game may hinder his quest of winning world best footballer for years to come, is too bad of him to the extent that his own fans are booing him after scoring four goals, he may go a long way of creating a bad reputation for himself, if he did’nt change his attitude of selfishness and lack of respect towards his team mate, can’t he learn from the likes of Leone messi his team mate and supposed role model at barcelona, how messi humility lifestyle make him to win the heart of then Fifa President Josepp Blatter and his Uefa counterpart Platini.
