'We have to be a family' - Cavani stresses PSG unity following Neymar fall-out

While acknowledging there were differences among the club’s players, the Uruguayan underlined that any problems end once they step on the pitch.

EDINSON CAVANI HAS insisted that Paris Saint-Germain must be a “family” on the pitch, despite recent bad blood between the Uruguayan and record signing Neymar.

Tensions between the striking pair were sparked when Neymar and Cavani clashed over the taking of a penalty.

That kick, eventually missed by Cavani — the club’s long-time penalty taker — against Lyon, raised suggestions of a rift between the Brazilian and other members of the PSG first team.

But speaking after a 3-0 thrashing of Bayern Munich in Wednesday’s Champions League clash, Cavani asserted that the atmosphere at the club was positive.

“We are all different, we might all have different ways of living and seeing things,” he explained to Mediaset Premium.

“But when we are on the pitch, we have to all work together as if we’re a family to go towards the same objective, which is for the team to win.”

Both Neymar and Cavani hit the net to down the Bundesliga champions, with Dani Alves opening the scoring in a convincing victory.
