French Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain have intervened and decided the ‘fight’ of its two star strikers Edinson Cavani and Neymar over who should take free-kicks and penalties for the club.
This decision came as a result of bells of alarms that were ringing throughout the French capital on Sunday evening as Cavani and Neymar squabbled over who took a penalty against Olympique Lyon.
PSG had hoped the issue could be resolved between the two individuals but the story has since taken on a life of its own on social media.
PSG have been forced to make a decision of their own on the matter, after rumours of Neymar ‘unfollowing’ the former Napoli forward quickly appeared.

The Parisians have now decided that the Uruguayan International will remain the club’s penalty taker, according to MARCA.
Neymar’s 222 million euro arrival looked to have shifted the balance of power at the Parc des Princes.
On Monday, club President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi met with both players in question to discuss the issue.
Further meetings with Unai Emery and Antero Henrique are scheduled for Wednesday.
