Neymar | Defensive contributions

It was always presumed that Neymar would take some time to settle in at Barcelona - and while he has shown glimpses of brilliance in his debut campaign at the Camp Nou, there are still question marks over whether the Brazilian can become a true Barcelona player.

In order to become a true Barcelona player you need to press from the front, ferociously, and win the ball back within seconds of conceding possession. You also need to help out defensively, always look for the pass and, more importantly, retain possession of the ball.

Neymar is still only 22 years old and learning all the time. But he has found it difficult at times this season, and the Barcelona faithful still haven’t quite taken to him yet.

Ultimately, it’s down to Neymar himself whether he fails or succeeds at Barcelona.
