Messi hails Neymar's humble attitude

The Barcelona forward has praised the Brazil international for the way in which he has adapted to his new surroundings since his headline-grabbing move to Camp Nou
Barcelona star Lionel Messi has hailed Neymar's humble attitude since his summer transfer from Santos, with the Brazilian settling in well at his new club.

There were question marks about whether the pair would be compatible following the 21-year-old's move to Camp Nou but the Argentina international is pleased with the way in which his team-mate has adapted to La Liga.

"Things are going well with Neymar," Messi told CN23.

"He has adapted very quickly and has been received well in the dressing room. He's a great guy and is very humble.

"The thing know is to get to know each other better on the pitch little by little and develop a special connection."

Neymar has netted once in five official appearances for Barca so far, while Messi has scored five in four games.
