Neymar tells Suarez: I can’t give you advice on how to start scoring again

suarez-barcaNeymar has told Barcelona team-mate Luis Suarez he has no advice to give him on how to emerge from his goalscoring slump.

Suarez has scored just twice in 11 La Liga appearances since moving from Liverpool is a £75m switch in the summer.

And the 28-year-old was dropped by Luis Enrique for Barca’s trip to Elche on Saturday, a match in which Neymar scored twice.

Like Suarez, Neymar endured a difficult first season in Spain, but has well and truly found his feet this time round, netting 19 goals in 24 games in all competitions this campaign.

However, the former Santos man says there’s nothing he can do to help his struggling teammate.

“Am I giving advice to Suarez? He’s older and more experienced than I am. It is Suarez who should give advice to me,” Neymar told Goal.com.

“Anyway, Luis helps the team with his goals, with passes, with everything. It is an honour to be playing in the same team as him.”

Josep Bartomeu recently claimed that Barcelona have the best attacking players in world football, and Neymar wasn’t in a hurry to disagree with the Barca president.

He said: “Are we the best attacking trident in the world? I don’t know. But we do seem to be causing a lot of problems for opposing defences.”
