Barcelona signing Neymar: Messi my idol

Neymar says he's quickly getting along with Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The Brazilian is confident he and Messi can play together.

"Messi is a great person. He's an idol to me and I am very happy to be next to him. Speaking about Messi is very easy. He's a great player. I'm happy to be here. Just think of helping," said Neymar.

On Friday's match against Santos, he said: "It will be a little strange, different, but I will do the maximum to defend the Barcelona shirt."
