Barca captain Puyol: Neymar will need to adapt


Barcelona captain Carlos Puyol has warned new recruit Neymar that he will need to adapt quickly to European football.

The 21-year-old was presented as the latest star of the Camp Nou side on Monday following a transfer totalling €57 million was completed last week.

All eyes will be on the young Brazilian next season as he looks to prove himself on the European stage, but Puyol has stressed that it will be a different proposition for the former Santos forward.

"Let's see how he plays in Europe, because it is very different, but a pro adapts to any situation," the 35-year-old told reporters in New York.

Puyol also discussed how he thinks the Brazil international will fit into the competitive Barcelona squad. 

Puyol added: "On the left wing, where he played at Santos."

Neymar will play in the Confederations Cup with the Seleção prior to linking up with his new club for pre-season preparations this summer.
