The Neymar-Cavani clash: We Saw it Coming... YES we did !

It's not a secret that when it comes to the amazing quality of players  Paris Saint-Germain have, no one can compete with that. Having Neymar-Cavani and Mbappe up front is each and every team biggest nightmare. The Pretty much amazing transfer window PSG had this summer left everyone speechless.. Money can do wonders dear readers.. Or does it ? to answer this question and any other question we need to take a fast and efficient look at the players PSG have now, Shall we ?

Supported by the very, very rich Nasser Al-Khelaïfi who bought the club in 2011, the Paris side have assembled a squad filled with excellent players. Over time, this technically-strong side has been molded into a strong possession-based system and year after year, the team wintnessed a strong addition to what is already a powerful squad.

With the likes of the highly-intelligent Thiago SilvaMarco Verratti, Rabiot and others, PSG already has the best of each country But the attacking force remain the Outstanding feature of the team. PSG possess an array of strong attackers both on the wings and centrally. Throughout the majority of matches. The team's Frontline is something coming straight out of fairy tales, Neymar (€222 million), Kylian Mbappé (€180 million), and Edinson Cavani (€63 million). In France PSG should be so outrageously overpowering in every area of the pitch.

PSG did demonstrate in this new season that their attackers are eager to work, to score, to entertain and to probably bring Paris it's firs champions league trophy.

Unselfish players.. or ARE THEY?

Football players are human beings after all, and someone once said that "To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve" and let's be honest, coming to PSG for it's "history" and "glorious" past was, is, and never will be anyone's motive to sign for the parisian side. Because, let be honest once again, PSG was built on Money, and can never fit in with the rest of the squad where football was made, the likes of Milan, Liverpool, Manchester United, Real Madrid are up there, and the newcomers are just the makers of what we call now, foot-business.

Back to our Cookie, Players who signs for PSG are there for their own sake, for their own glory before anyone's. It's True, you know it and we know it and it's time we face the truth. Neymar in addition to the BIG BIG money he recieved when he signed for Paris, he was also in it for the glory he never got to experience in the shadow of the one and only Lionel Messi.

Neymar has already proved on a several occasions that he's the hardest of cookies, he wants the best for himself and doesn't really care how that can affect others. And truth be told, I don't see how can PSG fans not see that Neymar is in Paris to be the Star, THE ONLY STAR. And would not, in any case, accept that someone could take that place out of his hands, you hear that ? Edison Cavani ?

A shock.. But not to everyone ! 

Now, dear readers, I would hate to play the "i know it all" character right away, but that Neymar-Cavani thing you just saw up there ? you see it ? Yeah I saw that Coming MILES AWAY. How can you not ? if you've been a close follower to Neymar on and off the pitch you will SURE notice that the dude is as selfish as one can be and that he is in Paris to demonstrate that, wide and clear.

Cavani was there way before Neymar and he was sort of "the star of the team" but in Neymar's head that's is up for a major change once he steps on the Parc des princes ground.

However, Neymar trying to snatch penalty duties off of his PSG colleague is sure a first of so many other Arrogant things Neymar will enjoy doing during his PSG time. Cavani has been the established penalty-taker for Paris since the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic And He had succeeded with them ALL. It was NEVER Neymar’s place to impose a change and insist to take the penalty from Neymar.

EUUKH, Taking it to social media, of course ! 

Really Neymar, Really ? I mean come on, no one can argue about how good of a player you are, but that off pitch brain of yours really need some work. Neymar has reportedly unfollowed Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Edinson Cavani on both Instagram and twitter after their "clash" and also, and god I hope this is not true, But Media are suggesting that the player also asked the PSG president to sell Cavani. GOD !



PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN, now it's time for you to take the blame. WHAT DID YOU REALLY EXPECT HEIN? a minimum knowledge of football would tell that teams MAKE the stars and not the other way around. buying star never and WILL NEVER buy you glory. So many Big names on the Team sheet is good, SO Many big names on the pitch never is. We hope you learn from your mistakes, the sooner the better, for your own good.

CAF described the four players as Kings: ‘Making Africa Proud.’

Liverpool won the Premier League after three decades of waiting. The Reds long-awaited victory was sealed when Chelsea beat Manchester City on Thursday evening. The 2019 / 2020 season is yet to end but the points gap between them and City is unassailable.

Jurgen Klopp’s side thus had cause to celebrate through Thursday night, a famous victory without even kicking a ball. They had won their mid-week game against Crystal Palace by 4 unanswered goals.

The Confederation of African Football, CAF, highlighted the impact of Anfield’s African quartet in the feat. CAF described the four players as Kings: ‘Making Africa Proud.’ The four are:

  • Sadio Mane of Senegal
  • Mohammed Salah of Egypt
  • Joel Matip of Cameroon
  • Naby Keita of Guinea

Mane and Salah were joint top scorers last season along with Arsenal and Gabon’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang. Liverpool are the newest club to have the honour of winning the league – after Manchester United and City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers.

The team’s next game is against Manchester City on July 2. The Citizens will be expected to give the new champions a guard of honour at the game which will be played behind closed doors due to COVID-19 regulations since football resumed.
