Paris Saint-Germain striker, Edinson Cavani, has claimed that he has left penalty duties to Neymar at the club, because the Brazilian “knows how to face pressure”.

Cavani and Neymar were involved in a furious row in September, when PSG were awarded a spot-kick against Lyon in a Ligue 1 clash.

Cavani eventually stepped up and missed, leading to tensions between the two players and in the dressing room.

The Uruguay international on Monday said said: “Neymar will take the next penalty.”
