Fellow Argentine Tata Martino has arrived as coach, while Neymar is now sharing the pitch with Messi.
The Barca star remarked: "With Tata, the truth is that he has gone down well in the locker room and we are working well together.
"With Neymar it's good.
"He is a very good guy, humble and little by little we'll get to know eachother more and make a stronger connection together."
