'Zico' stepped onto the Camp Nou turf / VÍCTOR SALGADO - FCB

Legendary ex-footballer Zico spoke to Barça TV about his admiration for Neymar Jr as well as the upcoming Champions League tie against Arsenal.

"It would not be surprising at all if Neymar was named the best player in the world," said Zico, who also lavished praise on Barça’s front three.

“The trident is fantastic because they play as a team and suit each other perfectly,” before singling out Messi for praise. “He is starting to surpass the level of Pelé, Garrincha, Cruyff, Beckenbauer and Maradona”.

The talk of the town is Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg clash between FC Barcelona and Arsenal.

“Barça are favourites both in London and at Camp Nou,” said Zico while also stating that he sees Luis Enrique’s side and Bayern Munich as favourites for the trophy “due to their squad”.
