PSG Star: I disagreed with Neymar

Paris Saint-Germain forward Julian Draxler has opened up about his heated exchange with club-record signing Neymar towards the end of the season.

Following PSG's defeat to Montpellier, the pair were seen arguing, with reports claiming Neymar said,, "Who are you to talk to me? You only play backwards passes" 

Draxler has now revealed the arguing was just a heated moment, which was blown out of proportion by the media.

"I disagreed with him, as can happen with any teammate," Draxler told Kicker.
 
"When that happens to you with Neymar, it ends up in the media (laughs).
 
"If you don't agree, you have to say it, it doesn't matter who's looking at you.
 
"It was something during the game, he was annoyed, his tone of voice rose, but he calmed down.
 
"Nothing special, I'd say, but it showed that, in that moment, we weren't in the best of situations."
