Scolari worried about expectations for Barcelona signing Neymar

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari is unhappy with the pressure Barcelona signing Neymar is under.

Neymar is facing huge expectations in Brazil after the move from Santos.

"Neymar is not wearing 11 Brazil jerseys, but just the one. He is part of the team," Scolari told reporters.

"He always does what I ask him to do on the pitch and does so with all his heart. We want him to be a useful player for the team. You have to work for the team in order to be a good player.

"If he doesn't score, he's still helping his team-mates. I will not order him to try and take on 20 opponents like he occasionally did at Santos. It should be in the team's best interest."
