Unai Emery says he will step in if Neymar and Edinson Cavani cannot sort out their differences

Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery wants Edinson Cavani and Neymar to sort out any issues that they might have among themselves after the duo were seen squabbling over a penalty and free-kick during their 2-0 win over Lyon on Sunday.

The Uruguayan won the argument to take the penalty, only to miss it with Dani Alves too getting involved in the exchange only to give the ball to fellow Brazilian Neymar to take the free-kick.

Emery though believes such exchanges should be sorted out by the players and that if the pair do not come to an agreement, then he will step in.

“I have told them to sort it out between themselves. The penalties are to be struck by a few players, one is Cavani and the other is Neymar. It takes a gentleman’s agreement on the pitch to take the penalties. Afterwards, we will arrange internally for the penalties, because I think both are able to score them, and I want the two to alternate in this exercise”, Emery said, as quoted by ​Sky Sports.

“If there is no agreement, I will decide. I do not want it to be a problem for us”, he added.

The Paris based side have started the season brilliantly, winning all six games in Ligue 1 and are on top of the league standings with 18 points from six games.
