Diego Forlan has stated that Neymar would not have treated his former teammate, Lionel Messi, the way he treated Edinson Cavani.
Neymar and Cavani argued over who would take the penalty in the 2-0 win over Lyon, the Uruguay international won the battle and lost the spotkick.
The former Uruguay international feels his compatriot deserved better and says Neymar would not have treated Messi like that.
“[Cavani] deserves respect,” he told Radio Sport 890.
“He has been scoring goals for years and taking penalties, there has to be respect.
“Neymar would not have done that to Messi. He did not want Cavani to take the penalty. He was like a little boy annoying him.”
