Barcelona far from perfect - Martino

The Blaugrana coach says there is a lot to improve regarding his men's display on the pitch, while he feels Neymar has adapted quickly since his arrival in Spain

Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino believes his side are "not close to perfection", despite their five-match winning streak in La Liga this term.

The Blaugrana thrashed Rayo Vallecano 4-0 on Saturday, but lost the battle for possession for the first time in 317 competitive games.

And the Argentine coach is not satisfied with his side's display on the pitch, calling from improvement in the coming encounters.

"We have perfection in points, but we are not close to perfection in the game and it is clear that we have many things to improve," the 50-year-old told Sport.

"What we saw in the second half against Ajax and Rayo I would build up upon and I think we're on the right track.

"The players feel increasingly more comfortable and will continue to improve. "

Youngster Neymar assisted Pedro's second of three goals on Saturday, and the coach is pleased with his performances since arriving at the club this summer.

"Very happy with his work and we should not forget that he had a difficult season with the Confederations Cup.

"He had a whooping arrival. We're very pleased with what Neymar is offering so far."
