Valverde urges Barcelona fans to forget about Neymar

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde has urged fans to forget about Neymar.

Valverde was quizzed on the biggest transfer story of the summer, that of Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"[I found out about it] the day he came to my office to tell me, which was the day it was made public," Valverde said.

"There had been a lot of talk and you could sense there was something as some players had commented something to me the week before, but I didn't know for sure.

"The best way to replace him is to look forward, not back."
