Neymar recommends coach - and he rejects Barcelona approach!

Barcelona star Neymar has made a new recommendation to the board about Luis Enrique's successor.

Neymar and his father have been in regular contact with Barca directors, including president Josep Maria Bartomeu, over several issues since the New Year.

And during their regular discussions, it's emerged Neymar recommended Brazil coach Tite to replace the departing Enrique.

Don Balon says Barca took the suggestion on board and have already sent out feelers to Tite's representatives.

However, surprisingly, the response was negative: the Selecao boss is only focused on taking Brazil to the Russian World Cup in 2018.
