Barcelona boss Martino explains Neymar gamble for El Clasico win

Barcelona coach Tata Martino was always confident of Neymar's performance after starting him at Real Madrid.

The Brazilian did not let his manager down in the 4-3 El Clasico win.

"He knows how to play in difficult matches, at 21 years of age he's seen it all and he's won a lot," said Martino.

On hat-trick hero Lionel Messi, Martino added: "He's put in many performances like the one he put in today, but the impact is greater in a Clásico. I really have run out of words for him."
