Barcelona ace Neymar spoke in a press conference today ahead of Brazil's friendly against Australia this weekend.

The 21-year-old forward expressed how thrilled he is at Barcelona and spoke about his experience so far at the club.

He told reporters: "I have a relaxed and quiet life there and I am thrilled with everything. I love the city, the Club and the people I am working with. Everything is in place to be perfect."

The Brazilian international also praised his team mate, the world class Lionel Messi

“Messi is on a different level,” said the striker after Neymar's relationship with Leo.

Messi was also brought up at the press conference: “I admire him and respect him. He's been the best player in the world on four consecutive occasions and he's got it all to win it again."

In 2009 Messi he won his first Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year awards.

He followed this up by winning the inaugural FIFA Ballon d'Or in 2010, and then again in 2011 & 2012. Neymar will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of the Argentinean International.

The Brazil star, who completed a move to Barcelona from Santos in May, explained: “My aim is to play in the best competitions in the world and that's what I'm getting with Barça. I'm gradually getting to know how everyone plays and they are finding out about me."

The Brazilian International is enjoying how much freedom he is getting at Barcelona to attack, just like he has with his national team and is beginning to adapt to Barça's footballing style and insisted: “I am still the same as always, I'm not any more restrained at all, Barça give me plenty of freedom to attack".

The Spanish champions look strong this year and with Messi and Neymar upfront they will be formidable opponents for any team.
