‘Playing for Barca is a luxury’

Neymar has admitted that playing at Camp Nou for the first time was ‘a marvellous experience’.

The Brazilian forward made his debut for the Blaugrana in an 8-0 win over Santos on Friday evening, and the youngster has claimed that it’s a ‘luxury’ playing for the Catalans.

“Playing with Barca at the Camp Nou was a marvellous experience,” he told the club’s official website.

“It was a bit strange [playing against my former club], but now I defend Barca’s colours.

“I wasn’t able to score, but I hope to do so soon.

“It’s a luxury to play alongside great players like Xavi, Messi or Iniesta.”
