Sports Desk: Paris Saint Germain star Neymar Jr has reportedly apologised to Edinson Cavani and his Paris teammates following the penalty incident at the weekend.

The Brazilian was caught up in a heated confrontation with the Uruguayan striker during the game against Lyon after Neymar wanted to take charge of penalty duty.

Cavani has typically taken penalties since Zlatan Ibrahimovic left the club but his spot kick was almost taken off him by the Brazilian forward at the weekend.

Though, Cavani stood strong and rejected Neymar’s claims that he should take the penalty, which seemingly angered Neymar.

The tension continued throughout the game as Neymar also stole a free-kick off both Dani Alves and Cavani.

Following the game, Edinson stormed out of the ground and refused to speak to any press on his way out the back door.

That was followed by even more tension this week as the problem seemingly did not get resolved for several days.

Now, reports state that the Brazilian star has apologised to his PSG teammates including Cavani during training on Thursday.

L’Equipe report that Thiago Silva was used as a translator for the meeting and that the problem should now have been resolved.
