Pep Guardiola believes Barcelona could have won more CL trophies with Neymar

Neymar would have achieved more if he stayed at Barcelona.

Pep Guardiola hails Neymar as the ‘King of Santos’ when he faced him at Club World Cup.

The Blaugrana spent £70million to sign Neymar who then was sold to PSG in a record £198m deal in 2017.

The former Barca manager believes the club would have won the Champions League two or three times more had Neymar stayed at Camp Nou.

“I remember against Santos, I showed some clips of Neymar. I told them this was the king of Santos and all the players were open-mouthed, saying: ‘Oh my god, what a player.’”

“He’s a joy to watch. As a spectator, I enjoy it a lot every time. He has Brazil on his shoulders. The No 10 for Brazil, it’s not easy to wear. And I’m pretty sure if he’d stayed in Barcelona, Barcelona would’ve won two or three Champions Leagues more.

“I faced the Barcelona with Luis Enrique – Neymar, Messi, Luis Suárez – the best three unstoppable guys I’ve seen in my life. If he had stayed they would have achieved more in that situation, but he decided to go to Paris.”
