Iniesta hails Neymar

  • One of the contemporary greats of world football, Andres Iniesta, has said that Neymar, right now one of the best strikers of Brazil, will be welcomed with open arms at Barcelona, which is set to be his new team in the upcoming season. Spain is expected to play against Nigeria in a group B encounter as part of the Confederations Cup and, while Iniesta was speaking to the media on the eve of the encounter, he seemed visibly thrilled when he was asked it would be playing alongside Neymar, who is now 21 years old and one of the finest prospects of the global game.

    The experienced playmaker feels that Neymar is one of the best talents going around and will add a very critical edge to the Catalunyan giants’ team. He has also assured that every effort will be made to make sure that he feels home as early as possible. Iniesta has also ruled out any possibilities of Neymar facing any problem while playing alongside Lionel Messi, who is regarded as the best footballer alive. Neymar has recently signed for Barcelona from Santos and the signing amount is 57 million euros. It is expected that he will start training with his Barca mates from the middle of July.
