Guardiola: Messi and Neymar can succeed in same Barcelona team

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola believes Lionel Messi and Neymar can succeed together at Barcelona. The former Barca coach is convinced the combination can work.

"Will Messi and Neymar work together? The best player of all time alongside a brilliant footballer? I'm sure they'll work together," he told the press.

"Barca and Spain have got a lot of longevity. It's not unusual that Spain lost [to Brazil], they had to at some point. Age will always catch up with you at some point but the national team have a bright future. Spanish football coaches work very well with the youngsters and with the talent there is out there, so I'm not worried."
