Neymar Jr looks to be enjoying himself in the Catalan capital having spoken very positively during an advertising event this Thursday. “I am happy to be at Barça, we are creating history and everything I have dreamt of has become a reality.” The Brazilian trained with Suárez and Messi again following a few weeks apart due to Messi's injury. He believes the key to the trident's attacking prowess is “the friendship that we have both on and off the pitch.”

Barça meet Depor, a team who managed to surprise them last year, on Saturday. This is the first in a testing run of games including Manchester City home and away in the Champions League and difficult away fixtures at Sánchez Pizjuán and Mestalla. Neymar Jr is in a confident mood: “the two games against Manchester City will be an attractive proposition for football fans and we want to win them.”

Barça's number eleven has stressed the importance of “the whole squad being at their best as there are lots of games to play until the end of the season.” Neymar Jr is aware of the need for every player to contribute for the team to win titles. Finally, the Brasilian star seems to be in no rush to overtake his teammate Messi to become the best player in the world. He stated: “I am closer and closer to my best form and I am focused on training everyday, but Messi is the best.”
