Barcelona forward Neymar has revealed that he admires Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann as a player.
The two attackers came head-to-head on Saturday as Barcelona made the trip to Atletico in La Liga.
Neymar found the back of the net in a 2-1 win for the Catalan outfit, but Griezmann once again impressed for Atletico.
After the match, Neymar was questioned on the quality of the Frenchman and had some kind words for his fellow professional.
"Griezmann is a star and I really like him. He's a great player," Neymar told reporters in Madrid.
Griezmann, who joined Atletico from Real Sociedad in the summer of 2014, scored 25 times in 54 games for the capital outfit last season.body check tags ::
