Neymar Comes Down From Stands After Full-Time And Goes Straight Over To Edinson Cavani
Neymar's rocky relationship with teammate Edinson Cavani is controversial to say the least.
Last year, the Brazilian reportedly told PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he wants Edinson Cavani offloaded after the pair argued over who should take a penalty.
There was also an incident where Cavani went to take a free-kick and Dani Alves nabbed the ball off him before passing it to Neymar to take
French outlet L'Equipe reported that an altercation between the two took place at one point, with Cavani unhappy with the way Neymar conducted himself and the most expensive player giving it back to his strike partner.
Even club captain Thiago Silva is said to have intervened to defuse things and stop it from getting physical.
You get the picture. Cavani has recently admitted that there was a problem between the pair in an interview with RMC Sport, but it seems both players have put their differences behind them after a video of them during the full-time celebrations emerged.
"It's true there was a problem with Neymar. I'm a football worker, not a star. I told him I'm the first guy who wants him to win accolades individually, I'll do everything to help but on one condition. He must put the team's objectives first."- FourFourTweet (@FourFourTweet) May 3, 2018

PSG beat French minnows Les Herbiers 2-0 in Tuesday's Coupe de France final as the injured Neymar looked on from the stands, and after the full-time whistle, he put on a club shirt to join his teammates on the pitch.
It didn't take him long to approach Cavani and it's great to see what happened next:
As you can see in the footage above, Neymar tapped the striker on the shoulder and seconds later, the pair embraced in a moment many would have thought impossible a few months ago.
Things certainly seem to have changed, months after the altercation hit the front pages.
Do you think Neymar will stay at the Parc des Princes this season or will he leave the likes of Edinson Cavani for another club?
Let us know in the comments.
