Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba: Forget Neymar. The important ones stayed

Jordi Alba insists Neymar has already been forgotten by his former Barcelona teammates.

Barca thumped Juventus in their Champions League opener last night.

And fullback Alba said at the final whistle: "Forget about Neymar and others who are gone.

"Those who wanted to leave are no longer here and there is no getting around it. The important ones are those who have stayed.

"(Leo) Messi? Well, Leo is another story. It is clear that Barca will notice it when he's gone. He is unique."
