On Thursday he was presented as the new company's new image and took questions about Barcelona in the aftermath of their 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, which kept the club's treble hopes alive. 

"Everyone liked it. We produced a really good performance," commented the author of Barça's third goal, who hopes to win all three titles. 

"That was our objective since the beginning of the season and it's getting closer all the time. In La Liga we have a really difficult game this weekend and we must fight until the end," Neymar added.

The Barça attacker also wanted to show his appreciation to Lionel Messi, who during the win over Cordoba last weekend let him take a penalty, despite being on a hat-trick. 

"It's a detail I will never forget. He could have scored a hat-trick, but he left the penalty to me. It left me without words. I learn a lot from him, both on and off the pitch," said the Brazilian. 

Neymar wouldn't say which team he would prefer to face in a hypothetical Champions League final, and was cautious not to write off Pep Guardiola's side's chances in the return leg next week. 

"[Real] Madrid and Bayern have a lot of quality and can surprise you at any moment. We have to be calm and show humility, because there are still 90 very difficult minutes left to be played," he continued. 

He also spoke about other Barça matters, such as the possibility of signing Paul Pogba, someone he considers "a player with a lot of quality and want that would be welcome [at Barcelona]."

Finally, the skilfull footballer confirmed that he would like to play for Brazil at the Olympics in Rio in 2016.
