The Catalan centre-back heaped praise on the Brazilian starlet, but noted that Muricy Ramalho's team is comprised of other talented individuals that can pose a threat as well
The Catalans' captain warned, however, that there is more to Muricy Ramalho's team than the talented teenager, and demanded a complete performance against the Brazilian outfit.
"Neymar is a great player with a great future ahead of him," the 33-year-old told Reuters after the 4-0 victory over Al Sadd on Friday.
"When he dribbles with the ball, you never know what may happen. A single defender will not do against him, the whole back line should work together.
"A lot of people talk of Neymar, but we must not get fixated on him, they [Santos] have more players, and we must deliver a complete performance, if we are to win."
The Club World Cup final between Santos and Barcelona kicks off at 10:30 GMT on Sunday.
