Puyol cools Neymar hype

Carles Puyol has warned Neymar he will need to adapt quickly to European football at Barcelona.
Brazil international Neymar was presented as the latest star of the Camp Nou side on Monday following a transfer totalling 57 million euros, but club captain Puyol has stressed that playing in La Liga will be a tough proposition for the 21-year-old.

"Let's see how he plays in Europe, because it is very different, but a pro adapts to any situation," Puyol told reporters in New York.

The Brazilian's arrival casts further doubt over the future of veteran Spain forward David Villa at the Liga champions.

With Pedro Rodriguez and Alexis Sanchez expected to stay, Puyol admitted he is uncertain as to where former Valencia striker Villa will be next season.

"I do not know where he will go," he said.

Neymar will compete in the Confederations Cup with Brazil prior to linking up with his new club for their pre-season preparations.
