Neymar: 'Lionel Messi is a genius'

Barcelona attacker Neymar lavishes praise on his club teammate Lionel Messi.

Barcelona attacker Neymar has branded teammate Lionel Messi "a spectacular player".

The Brazilian moved to the Catalan outfit from Santos in the summer and has already formed a strong understanding on the pitch with Messi.

"It is the realisation of a dream, an inexplicable pride, and Messi is a spectacular player, a genius both on and off the field," the Brazilian international told Titan.

"Hopefully I can help him a lot on the pitch. It is an honour to play alongside him."

Messi has spent the last couple of weeks on the sidelines with a thigh injury, but is widely expected to return to action against Osasuna this weekend.
