PSG Come Up With Answer Over Neymar And Cavani Penalty Problem
Neymar and Cavani are having such a wonderful playground spat over penalties that we're expecting one of them to go away in a huff with the ball before their mums teach them about sharing. But PSG have come up with a better way to resolve it.
After spending £198 million on Neymar in the summer, and also somehow signing Kylian Mbappe on a loan deal of all things, you'd have expected all the headlines about the French team to be positive this year.
But, despite a good start to the season, especially for Neymar, all the attention seems to be on the world's most expensive player and fellow forward Edinson Cavani not being able to share.

The former Barca man has an issue with the Uruguayan striker for taking all the penalties and the pair had a heated discussion at the weekend when the Parisians were awarded a spot-kick, it was all rather embarrassing.
According to RMS, via AS, the way to resolve the issue is to make assists and goals both count towards the pairs separate goal bonuses, meaning that helping their partner reach the mark they need will so help them.

As well as the whole goal bonus issues it does seem like Neymar is desperate to score as many as possible to give himself the best chance of winning the Ballon d'Or, basically his whole reason for wanting to get out of Lionel Messi's shadow.
It is worrying that singular glory does seem to be the Brazilian's main reason for joining the Ligue 1 side, whilst money is probably a helpful factor, and you wonder if he'd sacrifice his team for it.

The report does suggest that Cavani is set to continue as the team's number one spot kick taker with Neymar his trusty number two but after the former Napoli man missed last week he will be certainly on thin ice.
They should just play rock, paper, scissors every time they get a penalty.
