Neymar: My Confidence Is Increasing

Brazilian wonder-kid Neymar believes that the Nou Camp has not yet seen his best form since Barcelona signed him from Santos in the summer.

Neymar will have a huge six months ahead of him as his first season in Spain draws to a close ahead of his country’s home World Cup tournament in the summer.

The forward who has scored 11 goals in 25 appearances in all competitions since the start of 2013-14 said that he has adapted to life at the current La Liga champions, but insisted that there is much more to come from him even though some critics believe he should find the back of the net more.

“My confidence is increasing with every game. I am starting to be able to show more freedom on the pitch, but I know I can still produce some much better games than I have done so far,” Neymar told Sport.

“My adaptation has been very fast but it is still ongoing. Every time I play I feel like I am picking up a little more experience and showing more of my real game.”

“The goals and the assists are something that will come naturally and the truth is that this is not something I am worried about it," Neymar continued.

“First and foremost I want to help the team. The only thing that worries me and haunts me is the challenge to win matches and titles.”

“No, I am not surprised to have been on the bench because I have been a little unwell and that has harmed me, but now I am fine and I am back.”

“But I always want to play, regardless of the importance of the match. Hopefully I can start in the Copa against Getafe.”

“The main things that have helped me to settle in are my family and being with good players who have welcomed me with open arms. They have been very good people with me and I appreciate it very much.”
