Neymar sadness at Enrique departure

Neymar believes he is having his best ever season at Barcelona but admitted his sadness at Luis Enrique’s decision to leave the club.

The Brazilian forward has scored 12 goals and contributed 16 assists for the Blaugrana this campaign – helping them to top La Liga, progress to the Copa del Rey final and the knockout stages of the Champions League.

"I think it's my best season at Barca," Neymar told Barcelona’s official website.

"Both myself and the team are getting better and that is important."

However, the former Santos forward confessed his manager’s announcement he would leave at the end of the campaign is ‘sad’ for him and his teammates.

"It's sad because he is someone we have a lot of affection for," Neymar continued.

"We have been with him for three seasons and we have a lot of faith in him. We wish him the best in life.

"He knows what is best for him and we are just happy with how he has helped us in the last few years in which we have won so many trophies."
