Neymar reveals he is sometimes star-struck by Barcelona team mates

Neymar in awe of Messi - Action Images

Neymar has revealed it is a dream to play for Barcelona and that sometimes he feels like he is playing a video game when he sits next to the various stars in the Camp Nou dressing room.

The 22-year-old was quoted by Mundo Deportivo, with Football Espana published the Brazil superstars comments.

However, bizarrely, Neymar labeled reserve keeper Pinto alongside the amazing players he sits next to ahead of the likes of Andrés Iniesta among others.

“For me to get to where I am now has been very difficult,” Neymar explained.

“It brings me a lot of happiness. To be at Barcelona today is the fulfillment of a dream.

“Going into the dressing room is like playing a video game, because I am with Xavi, Pinto, Messi, Valdes and others.

“But they are all like my family.”

These are comments you would expect from the Brazil number ten but it is telling that he mentions Pinto amongst those he feels star-struck by.

Neymar will hope that in several years time a big money signing will sit alongside him in the Barcelona changing room and feel in awe because of all he has achieved at the Camp Nou.
