Neymar: I Used To Be Embarrassed To Talk To Lionel Messi

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 03, 2017 09:00 PM @KeeganKruger

FC Barcelona superstar Neymar has revealed that he found life difficult in his first month with the Blaugrana, admitting he was too embarrassed to speak to the likes of Lionel Messi at first.

Barca Target Comments On Atletico Future

The 25-year-old joined the Catalan giants from his boyhood club Santos in 2013, and has since become a vital part of the Spanish side's attacking trio.

The Brazilian has now explained how he felt completely out of place when he first arrived at the Camp Nou.

"I would walk into the dressing room and I would look to one side and see Messi and then I would look to the other side and I would see Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and Dani Alves," Neymar told Brazilian TV show Caldeirao do Huck.

"I thought that I was inside a video game. One day I was playing with them on the games console and then the next day I was there next to them.

"The first month was very difficult and to begin with I was embarrassed to speak to Messi, as these guys were idols. They were idols to me, while I was the new arrival and still very young."

Xavi Praises Pep's Man City Target

The Selecao talisman has won eight trophies in his four years with the Blaugana so far, including two La Liga titles and the Champions League.
