The Brazilian often shows off his trickery during games, particularly when his team are in the lead, which can annoy opposition players and coaches.

Zidane understands his colleagues' frustration, but has insisted the league is richer because of players such as Neymar.

"That's what Neymar is like. There are those who like it, and others who don't," he said, as quoted by Marca.

"When you do too many tricks, it's to be expected that your opponent will get angry, but in terms of entertainment value, it's great that people get the chance to enjoy the performances of such a player."

Outrageous rumours have linked the Brazil captain with a move to Barcelona's eternal rivals Real, but his father, who is also his agent, has dismissed such talk.

Neymar has scored 21 goals and assisted a further 19 in all competitions this season, but is among several first-team regulars who will be rested for the Blaugrana's Copa del Rey clash against Valencia on Wednesday night.

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Andres Iniesta, Dani Alves, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano, Jordi Alba, Arda Turan and Claudio Bravo will all miss the second leg after the Catalan giants won the first fixture 7-0.
