Neymar talks football and life after reaching 100 appearances with Barça. / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

FC Barcelona star Neymar recently reached 100 official appearances with FC Barcelona. To celebrate the milestone, he recently sat down to give an exclusive interview to fcbarcelona.com in which he emphasizes, among other things, his feelings since joining the team and his short and long term objectives with the Club.

"My adaptation to the team has come quite easily. I did get a lot of help — from the Club, my teammates, the city, my family..." At just 23 years of age, Neymar is already one of the team's leaders. Now in his third season, the Brazilian striker has one clear goal: "I want to continue making history in Barcelona; I want to win more titles."I changed my game and my life, both for the better.

From his own perspective, Neymar explains that he has to keep getting better while helping his teammates to continue winning the maximum number of titles possible. After a "difficult first season due to injuries and a league title that was lost in the final game of the season," he bounced back with a fantastic second year. "We had a great season winning the treble, and this [season] is more difficult. We have to do more than we have been to beat our opponents," he said.

Neymar came to Barcelona three summers ago as one of the most promising young players in the world. Now, he says, he's a different player.

"I changed my game and my life, both for the better. The city helps me a lot and I'm very happy."

One thing that has helped, surely, is his relationship with Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez. "I think we surprised people. Some said we wouldn't get along well, but I knew they were wrong."
