Neymar on Messi's passed penalty: "It was for me"

During Barcelona's 6-1 rout of Celta tonight, Messi and Co. scored a penalty that will be talk of the town for weeks to come, with Messi knocking the ball sideways, and Suárez running in to finish.

Neymar spoke after the game and confessed they'd been talking talked about the possibility of a passed penalty this week, Cruyff style. They hadn't told the rest of the dressing room or the coach however.

Neymar said that they’d been practicing the move, and that while it was Suárez who ended up knocking Messi’s passed spot-kick home, in reality it wasn’t for the Uruguayan but for him.

The number 11 didn’t appear too bothered by having his goal nicked off him, saying Barça “played entertaining football that gives people enjoyment”.
