It was one of the most controversial moments to hit Paris Saint-Germain's of late and yet Edinson Cavani has insisted that his reported penalty spat with Neymar was nothing out of the ordinary.

Stating that such moments are of little significance, Cavani added that the sort of exchange had between the pair should have remained in the dressing room rather than be blown up by the media.

"They create or invent stories that don't exist, what counts is when the team scores a goal," the striker told Uruguayan outlet Ovacion.

"We have to work hard and play together to achieve our objectives with the team, and everyone who demonstrates that will be fine. But, if there are people who don't feel it or think differently, that's on them.

"With Neymar, there was nothing special about what we discussed.

"What happened on the pitch or in the dressing room was greatly exaggerated and they must remain in that place because that's what football demands."

Cavani spent Christmas top of the Ligue 1 scoring charts having bagged 19 times in the competition this season with Neymar following behind on 11 goals.
