Neymar: Messi 'is my idol'

Barcelona attacker Neymar has once again praised team-mate Lionel Messi, insisting the Argentinean is "above all".

Barcelona put in an imperious attacking performance against Santos, led by Lionel Messi and Neymar.
Neymar and Messi have proved compatible early on in the youngster's Barca career.

Neymar has openly stated that the opportunity to play alongside Messi was a decisive factor in his decision to join Barca and he appears to have quashed concerns that the two would be unable to combine effectively.

Tomas: Replacing Victor Valdes

The 21-year-old scored a goal in Brazil's 6-0 rout of Australia on Saturday and revealed he has settled into life at his new club well, while hailing the influence of his "idol" Messi.

"Messi is above all," Neymar said. "I admire him, he is my idol. I respect him a lot. He has been the best player in the world four times now, and he's eager to do it again.

"My life in Barcelona is quiet. But I love how everything is going. I love the city, the club and the people I work with. Everything is perfect."
