Part of the reason why Neymar flourished at Barcelona was because he had a teammate in Lionel Messi who only ever wanted him to be happy.
We’ve seen in recent weeks just how much Neymar values individual glory; first in his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain, fuelled in part by a desire to win the Ballon d’Or, and then when he clashed with Edinson Cavani in Sunday’s win over Lyon.
While Messi was willing to hand Neymar a penalty when Barcelona beat Cordoba in 2015, Cavani wasn’t quite so generous.
Neymar received a firm no when he asked the Uruguayan to take a penalty against Lyon and was left to sulk about it.
It’s left PSG boss Unai Emery in the unenviable position of having to resolve a feud between two of his most important players.
