The Brazil international does not feel that he is the right man to help the struggling Uruguayan, given he is six years younger than his fellow forward
The Uruguay international has been struggling to find his best form since joining the Catalans from Liverpool ahead of the 2014-15 campaign and was even dropped from the starting XI for this weekend’s 6-0 win over Elche after scoring just twice in 11 La Liga games.
Neymar endured similar difficulties in his first season at Barcelona in 2013-14, yet the Brazil international believes he is not the right man to tell his team-mate how to cope with the situation.
“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 reporters.
“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.”
Neymar then went on to discuss Josep Bartomeu’s recent comments that Barcelona have the most potent forward line in the world.
“Are we the best attacking trident in the world? I don’t know,” he added. “But we do seem to be causing a lot of problems for opposing defences.”
Neymar has been a key figure for Barcelona this campaign, scoring 19 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions.
