Barcelona youngster praises Neymar and looking to learn from Brazilian
Barcelona youngster Gerard Deulofeu is looking to learn from team mate Neymar this season and discussed the three high-profile forwards he will be competing with at the Camp Nou.
Neymar moved to the Catalan club last season from Santos and though the Brazilian is only 22-years-old, Deulofeu is looking to learn from him.
The young Spanish attacker addressed the media today at a press conference, Football Espana quoted the winger.
Deulofeu discussed Neymar, Lionel Messi and new Barcelona signing Luis Suárez at today's press conference, he said: “From Suárez I’ll take hunger, from Neymar skill and Messi dribbling and everything else. They are the three best, you have to learn from them.
“The signing of Suarez is the club’s decision. For my patter, if Luis is here or not, I have to do my job and try to do my best.
“Neymar, Messi and Suarez are three of the best strikers in the world. We must all work to earn our place.
“We all know that Barca is the best. I’ve got to work hard but I hope to earn my place.”
With Neymar expected to miss the start of the season while he rests his back injury, Deulofeu can expect to get some early season opportunities.
