Neymar debut match with Barcelona is less than satisfactory. Acknowledged he still needs time to adapt and restore the team’s physical condition in order to get the best performance.
Once purchased with a tag of 57 million euros of Santos, Neymar appeared for the first time in front of Barca fans in the preseason game. He appeared as a substitute in a trial match Lechia Gdanks counter yesterday, which ended with the score 2-2.
Replace Alexis Sanchez in the 78th minute, Neymar “only” made five successful passing to his colleagues, lost the ball twice, and four times violated. Not one shot that showed despite the release backheel action when building an attack from the left side.
“I am delighted to finally get my debut melakoni. I’m proud to play for Barca. I need time to adapt and achieve match-fit,” said Neymar was quoted as saying by Marca.
“There are some hard tackle Okay I received but not why. Was not harmful to me. I have not talked much on Martino but he was fully supported by the club and the players,” he continued.
Neymar is now only had time in three pre-season games remaining to be merged with his new colleagues, namely against Santos (August 2) and two preseason games in Southeast Asia, Bangkok (August 7) and Kuala Lumpur (August 10), before Barca melakoni season opener on August 17.
