Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Nov 19, 2019 8:09 pm

Edinson Cavani spoke of his confrontation with Lionel Messi during Uruguay\'s 2-2 draw with Argentina.

Cavani reportedly challenged Messi to a fight, to which Messi responded \"whenever you want.\"

\"It\'s part of football, Clasicos are like this. The truth is that it was at times a game that had friction, there were challenges and things that are part of football, especially of South American [football],\" said Cavani.

Messi also made headlines for a confrontation with Brazil manager Tite last week.
