Montoya: Neymar can be top scorer

Martin Montoya has reserved special praise for his Barcelona teammate Neymar, insisting that the Brazilian can be top goalscorer.

The Selecao international netted five goals in two games last week, and the Blaugrana defender has claimed that the former Sao Paulo youngster has ‘answered’ his critics.

“Media said Neymar couldn’t score, but he answered in the last two games,” he told reporters.

“If he keeps it up, he’ll be fighting to be topscorer.

“Neymar is happy here and helping us a lot – it’s as if he’s been a part of the group for a long time.”
