Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has claimed that Neymar will have no problems adjusting to life at Barcelona next season.

The forward will join the Spanish champions next season and Scolari feels that the player will adapt to European football quickly following his performance in their 4-2 victory over Italy at the Confederations Cup on Saturday.

"He dealt well with the European marking [against Italy] and Barcelona must be very happy as he is putting a good run of matches together," Scolari told FIFA.com.

"Neymar is a quality player and we knew he had those qualities - but he can still progress. He is an idol for all Brazilians, those who love football. You can call a genius someone who makes a difference and understands what is going on during a match.

"He was doing that before when he was not scoring but was making chances for his teammates and in so doing he was a team player."

Neymar has scored a goal in each of his three appearances at the Confederations
Cup.
