You are not Messi – What Cavani told Neymar during first meeting revealed

Edinson Cavani asked Neymar if he thought he was Lionel Messi, when the Brazilian walked into Paris Saint-Germain’s dressing room for the first time, emerging report has revealed.

Cavani and the Brazilian don’t see eye-to-eye, after their recent squabble over penalty and free-kick taking responsibilities. But it seems their first exchange wasn’t much better either.

According to Spanish newspaper, El Pais, the Uruguay striker talked down on Neymar, following his world-record transfer from Barcelona.

“And who is this? Do you think you’re (Lionel) Messi?”, the striker reportedly asked, when Neymar first entered the dressing room.

Whether Cavani was joking or was intending to insult the new arrival remains unclear, especially since Neymar was seemingly left Camp Nou, to escape the shadow of Messi.
