Neymar: Pedro has surprised me the most
Barcelona newcomer, Neymar reflected on his whirlwind summer and his short time with Barcelona as they wrap up their pre-season tour of Asia.
In an interview with the Barcelona-based sports daily, Mundo Deportivo, Neymar admitted that amongst all the stars on the Blaugrana’s roster, names like Xavi, Iniesta and Messi, it is Pedro who has impressed him the most in his short time at the club.
“I really like Pedro a lot. He is capable of doing everything on the pitch.
“He scores, he runs without the ball, he attacks, he defends, he does it all. He is perhaps the player who has surprised me the most.”
Neymar went on to say that Barcelona are not just focused on Real Madrid in their hunt to defend their La Liga crown and the team isn’t really obsessed with Los Blancos from what he’s seen.
“We are not really thinking about Madrid. We don’t talk about them in the dressing room. We are not obsessed with Madrid. There are other teams that we have to keep an eye on.”
