Barcelona were absolutely thrashed in the UEFA Champions League semifinals by the German powerhouse, Bayern Munich. They lost 4-0 in Germany, then 3-0 at home — this being the first time they were destroyed at home in a long time.
With the signing of Neymar, the Brazilian superstar from Santos, Barca are hoping that he along with Messi can bring back the glory that made them a force to be reckoned with. He is a player who, like many at Barca, possesses a immense amount of skill and trickery that can decide games at times.
However, he does have his issues as well.
He likes to dribble the ball a lot and take on players at will. With teammates such as the ones available at his new club, he needs to learn how to pass as his first instinct unless he is one-on-one with the keeper or finds himself in a position where he can set himself up for an easy scoring chance.
The youngster is a huge fan of Messi’s. In fact, he even claimed that he chose to join Barca so he could continue to make Messi the best player in the world. For someone who knows his own worth, that is pretty admirable to still know that his place is well below the Argentine’s.
At the young age of 21, the winger still has a lot to learn, but at the same time, he has already done so much for club and country. From scoring goals to assisting teammates, to capturing the hearts of fans around the world, young Neymar has a bright future ahead of him.
