Barca boss Martino: We have to be logical with Neymar
By Chris Donald
Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino has warned against putting too much pressure on Neymar at the start of the season.
Neymar's partnership with Argentina star Lionel Messi has been debated from the day the Brazilian arrival from Santos, but Martino has stressed the need to be "logical" when deploying the 21-year-old in the Barca line-up, reports Goal.com.
The 50-year-old, who replaced Tito Vilanova this summer, told reporters: "It's difficult to imagine someone as good as Neymar not being able to bring something to Barcelona.
"He has connected well with Messi and the others, he looks comfortable. The only thing we need to do is be logical about when we put him in the team.
"We want to put him into the team little by little, without pressuring him. We're going to be careful about Neymar, but he's a great player and will give a lot to the team."
