Neymar insists that he has a "wonderful" relationship with Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi.

Barcelona forward Neymar has insisted that he has a "wonderful" relationship with teammate Lionel Messi.

Despite reports earlier in the season suggesting that the pair did not get on well, the Brazilian claims that he has enjoyed linking up with Messi during his first campaign in Spain.

"[Messi and I] haven't played all the games together but I think that the affinity that we have, that we've been creating, is very good," Neymar told CNN.

"The relationship that we have, it's been wonderful.

"Some people were saying we wouldn't get along, and that's been shown as being the opposite. He's a very relaxed guy, he's someone that I admire a lot."
