Barcelona coach Luis Enrique hails Marlon, Neymar for Celtic win

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique was delighted with Marlon's debut for their Champions League win at Celtic.

Enrique called up Marlon from Barca B for the night.

"He's just arrived from Brazil and I do not know if you could consider him a canterano," said the coach.

"But he has personality and has already shown that he can bring things and can help us."

On the Hoops fans jeering Neymar, Enrique added: "Neymar was in control.

"(The boos) were only five or ten minutes, the public has been spectacular ... I missed the 'You'll never walk alone', but thankfully I've seen it before because it is one of the best atmospheres that can be seen in Europe."
