“Messi has surprised me in all areas, before coming here, I had heard horrible things about him - like that he was extremely reserved and never spoke to anyone. Now I see things differently. In addition to being a genius, he was very helpful with me off the field. When I see how he behaves with people, I realise how much of a good person he is. I have nothing negative to say about him.” - Neymar Jr
“It’s only his second year here, but I have a great relation with Neymar, both on and off the pitch, he’s a great kid. Because of his potential, I think Neymar could become the best in the world. He’s a great player; it’s a pleasure to play with him.” - Leo Messi
