The Uraguay Striker has come out to say he does not have to be friends with Neymar for the duo to perform well in tandem with each other at Paris Saint-Germain.
There were murmurs of discontent between the team-mates at the start of the season, with the pair having clashed on the pitch over the taking of a penalty during a game against Lyon.
There was also a disagreement over a free-kick during the same match, with Dani Alves refusing to give the ball to Cavani to take the set-piece, handing it to Neymar instead.
The Uruguayan striker insists those issues are in the past but says that he does not need to be friends with his team-mate for them both to deliver in a PSG shirt.
“We must find the solution together and function as a team. We need to be a competitive team, but we do not need to be friends. You have to be professional, and afterwards everyone has their own life.
