Cesc Fabregas compares Barcelona teammate Neymar to Johan Cruyff.

Cesc Fabregas has said that Barcelona teammate Neymar reminds him of Camp Nou legend Johan Cruyff.

The Brazilian moved to Barca from Santos in the summer and has impressed in his first season, scoring 11 times and registering 10 assists in 26 appearances.

"He reminds me of Cruyff. I never got to see him play live, but Cruyff had an incredible change of rhythm, like [Neymar]," Fabregas told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"He starts fast, slows down suddenly, then starts again with a lot of speed. I also remember him having the same speed when driving [forward]."

Cruyff, who is widely regarded as one of the best players of all time, spent five seasons with Barcelona from 1973.
