The two clashed over the taking of a spot-kick earlier this season but it appears that no such conflict will be needed again

Neymar has been selected as PSG's penalty taker, according to supposed rival Edinson Cavani.

The pair were embroiled in an on-pitch argument over a spot-kick earlier this season during a 2-0 win over Lyon.

However, it appears the issue has now been settled. Cavani told reporters, after being asked who will take the next spot-kick for the club: "Neymar".

He explained, too, that manager Unai Emery made the decision, despite Thiago Silva previously claiming that "we have decided that Neymar will shoot all the penalties".

Cavani scored twice as PSG beat Nantes 4-1 on Saturday to maintain their position as leaders of Ligue 1.
