Maradona urges Barcelona not to turn Neymar "into bodybuilder"

Former Barcelona star Diego Maradona has urged his old club not to mess with Neymar's physique.

Barca have put Neymar on a new diet to strengthen his body.

But Maradona says: "Neymar delights me.

"He is a player that should be noted.

"He knows what to do with himself and that he does not need to be a bodybuilder. I hope they [Barcelona] don't do that with him. He just has to play football."
