- Neymar: "I need time to adapt"14:42 | 01/08/2013
Neymar spoke of his delight at making his Barcelona debut: “I’m happy I made my debut. It makes me very proud to be able to play for Barça. I need a bit more time to adapt and become match-fit,” he said.
The Brazilian analysed his performance against Lechia Gdańsk: “There were some strong tackles flying in, but everything is ok. They didn’t hurt me. I didn’t speak much to Martino, but he has the total support of the club and the players”.
Neymar is still awaiting the moment to play alongside Messi. “I feel comfortable with him. He’s an idol for me and I’m delighted to be able to play with him. He’s a great player and a great person and I want to help him to continue making the Barça fans happy,” he added.
The forward’s debut at the Camp Nou will be against Santos. “When I went onto the Camp Nou pitch I thanked god. It’s a real honour to play here. It will be strange and different to play against Santos, but now my team is Barcelona,” he concluded.
