Paris Saint-Germain: Neymar breaks silence on 'bust-up'


Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has broken his silence on reports that he was involved in a bust-up following his side's 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Earlier this week, it was claimed the Brazilian and Gianluigi Donnarumma had a go at each other in the dressing room after the clash against Los Blancos, with the duo said to have argued about the goalkeeper's error that led to a Karim Benzema goal.

According to Marca, the quarrel got so tense that the pair almost came to blows, but teammates intervened just in time.

However, Neymar has since taken to social media to reject claims of a fight having taken place by sharing a WhatsApp conversation he had with the Italian goalkeeper.

The chat starts off with the former AC Milan shot-stopper sharing the link to the report and apologising for his mistake on the pitch, before saying that such news was "unacceptable", seemingly indicating that there is no truth to it.

"Hey Ney, sorry about yesterday. This news is unacceptable," Donnarumma wrote, per the Daily Mirror.

Neymar replied: "Mate! It's OK! That can happen in football… we are a team and we are with you.

"You are still very young and you have already achieved so much.

"Stand up and keep going! A hug."

The Brazil winger also took to Instagram to deny reports that the argument had taken place.

"I hate coming here and talking about news, but the previous post is a lie," Neymar wrote, per Goal.

"There was no fight inside the locker room. Incompetent journalists who want to promote themselves, try the next one, OK?"
