Barcelona legend Cruyff: Neymar salary still big problem for teammates

Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff feels his old club still have a problem with Neymar, despite their stunning win at Real Madrid. Cruyff believes Neymar's salary is proving a problem inside the locker room.

"The problem is they have signed a 21-year-old who earns more than the players who have won everything. At his age, what he has to do is learn; time is on his side. Nobody can be a god at his age, this simply does not exist.

"It's not a problem for me", he added, "It is a problem for Barça. It creates conflict and a situation that is difficult to control."

Cruyff was always confident Barca would beat Real.

"I was confident Barcelona would win, I don't doubt their quality, and if this side manages to play their football they will always score goals". He also agrees with the majority when he says "a new league starts from now."
