Scolari: Neymar one of Brazil's best
Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari believes Neymar is one of the best players at his disposal ahead of next year’s World Cup.
The 21-year-oldcompleted a €57 million switch from Santos to Barcelona during the summer, and Scolari feels the move to the Spanish giants made sense given the player's qualities, reports Goal.com.
"To play for Barca would be fantastic for anyone," the 64-year-old told a press conference.
"Neymar is one of the best players in our team. It's reasonable that he made the switch."
Scolari then went on to answer questions about the possibility of Ronaldinho making a return the the Seleção squad but he pointed out that the national selection already consists of the best Brazil has to offer at the moment.
"There is no need to ask about Ronaldinho anymore. I have talked about it in Brazil. The players you see here are selected by me and that's what we have now.
"I always select the best players of Brazil. Players must be up to the Brazil level of football."
Scolari is looking forward to the World Cup in his own country next year, and expects the supporters backing the team to help them reach their full potential.
"Of course it's great to play it in Brazil. People in Brazil will help us build up a fantastic atmosphere. Of course pressure is normal."
