Neymar childish, wouldn’t have treated Messi like that – Diego Forlan

Former Uruguay Striker, Diego Forlan has expressed unhappiness with the Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar for the way he treated his team-mate, Edinson Cavani over who should take the penalty against Lyon.

According to Forlan, Neymar would never have treated Lionel Messi the way he did to his PSG team-mate Cavani.

Neymar and Cavani argued over who would take a penalty during their team’s 2-0 win over Lyon in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Cavani eventually won that battle, but saw his spot-kick saved by Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

Forlan feels his countryman, Cavani deserved better, saying Neymar would never have done similar thing to Messi at Barcelona.

“[Cavani] deserves respect,” the former Uruguay and Atletico Madrid star told Radio Sport 890.”

“He has been scoring goals for years and taking penalties, there has to be respect.

“Neymar would not have done that to Messi. He did not want Cavani to take the penalty. He was like a little boy annoying him,”‎ he said.

Despite the penalty disagreement, PSG have made a flying start to the season – winning eight straight matches in all competitions.

PSG president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has denied any talks of a rift between PSG’s star duo.
