Kylian Mbappe Sent Neymar A 'Whatsapp With The Video Of Edinson Cavani’s Foul'
Kylian Mbappe sent Neymar a video of Edinson Cavani's foul. Brilliant.
The Paris Saint-Germain teammates were opponents on Friday night as Brazil faced Uruguay at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium, and it was a spicy friendly.
Eight players were booked including Cavani who clattered Neymar in brutal fashion.
Neymar and Cavani not exactly being too friendly with each other there :eyes:

It's a tackle which hasn't gone unnoticed.
The other member of PSG's terrifying attacking trident, Mbappe, directly sent Neymar a video of the challenge on Whatsapp.
"Cavani is already fired up, it's not necessary (laughs)," he said about the Uruguayans's hefty tackle on Neymar.
"I sent Neymar a Whatsapp with the video of Cavani's foul, and he laughed."
Of course, Neymar and Cavani have history. From reported dressing room scuffles to on-field spats about PSG's set-pieces, though Mbappe isn't worried.
"Really it's nothing, they were defending their countries and it won't prevent them from playing together at PSG and giving each other big hugs."
Mbappe added about Neymar: "PSG is different, there is one great player above all the rest, Neymar. In the national team, we are all at same level."
Cavani also prevented any rivalry or feud escalating by defending his actions due to the occasion.
"When two South American teams meet, it's always a bit intense," he said.
"I think it was a very good match, and in the end we protested a bit about the penalty.
"But these are things that happen, it's always good to face big teams like Brazil and playing against great rivals like Neymar or the other players that make up this Brazil team."
Meanwhile, PSG resume their 2018/19 campaign against Toulouse next Saturday.
Will there be frosty reunion between Cavani and Neymar upon both men returning to Paris?
