Seleção captain Thiago Silva has “no doubt” Neymar will “triumph” at Barcelona
Brazil captain Thiago Silva believes Neymar has picked the right time to move to Europe and will be a success at Barcelona.
The 21 year-old joined the Catalan giants in June for €57 million. He has scored six goals in 22 appearances so far this season.
“He can help Brazil to win the World Cup and I am in no doubt at all that he will triumph at Barcelona,” Thiago Silva said, as reported by AS.
“I think he’s really surprised the press, they way he has been playing with the team and he can bring a lot to the team’s attack.
“I think Neymar chose the right moment to come to Europe. Here, he’s going to learn a lot because he’s playing with and against the best players in the world. I’m convinced that one day, he will be the greatest player in the world.”
