Barcelona's Cesc: No way does Neymar dive

Cesc Fabregas is full of praise for Barcelona teammate Neymar.

Cesc says the Brazilian is now confirming his reputation as one of the world's best.

"We've now had confirmation that he's not just a player with a few videos of skilful tricks on YouTube. There could have been doubts of him repeating his performances from Brazil here, but we've already seen that he can. On a team level he's very good, he's very smart and he has the nerve of a top player," Cesc told Marca.

"There's no way he dives - he's fouled! I'm sure he'll gain some weight, he'll grow physically. He's still a kid. Sometimes he takes a tumble in tussles because he's not as strong as the opposing player, but he doesn't dive."
