thumbnail Hello,

The wing-back has hailed his compatriot's contribution to Barcelona and is hopeful PSG can make an impact in the Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain defender Maxwell has taken the time to praise Neymar and believes his compatriot has already proven his worth for Barcelona since joining the club from Santos ahead of the 2013-14 campaign.

Neymar, 22, recently returned to match action after a month on the sidelines due to injury and Maxwell hopes the Brazil international will soon be back to his usual best.

"Neymar has magic in his feet. He has put in some great performances for Barcelona," the PSG left-back was quoted as saying by Marca.

"I hope he is soon able to find his best form again after his injury."

Maxwell then went on to discuss PSG's Champions League ambitions, while hailing star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic's match-winning performances this season.

"The first thing is to get through to the quarter-finals. If we manage to, we hope to be at the same level as the big teams we'll face.

"Zlatan is currently on fine form. He is even scor¡ng with his head! That's something we haven't seen before."

PSG beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-0 in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.
