Elfer-Zoff: Balotelli gives Neymar Arrogance Tip
In the dispute between PSG stars Neymar and Cavani,”Enfant terrible” Mario Balotelli also intervenes – and gives Brazilians a helping hand in the matter of arrogance.
The fights at Paris Saint-Germain between the two superstars Neymar and Edinson Cavani draw ever wider circles.Even Mario Balotelli has taken the floor.
Known as the enfant terrible, the PSG league rival OGC Nizza striker struck Neymar’s side via Instagram, giving the Brazilian a helping hand with his arrogance.
“You shouldn’t have even asked to shoot,”Balotelli wrote to Neymar and posted a picture of the L’ Equipe title page.The 27-year-old, however, postponed the idea that his posting was not quite serious.
The background to this is a dispute between the two PSG stars over the execution of a penalty kick in the Ligue 1 game against Olympique Lyon on the weekend.
Cavani prevailed in the word duel, but then failed to win his penalty for goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.Dani Alves had previously preferred to give the ball to his Brazilian countryman Neymar rather than Cavani, who was also interested in a free-kick situation.
The fact that Balotelli is taking sides with Neymar is obviously no coincidence, however, as the former Italian national team-mate Cavani has been involved more often in the past.
In the past league game in Nice, Balotelli fought several heated battles with the Uruguayan international after an unpunished assault by Cavani.
Cavani is strong but not a phenomenon,”Balotelli said in an interview with Radio Monte Carlo.
