Neymar has revealed that he was too "embarrassed" to talk to his teammates when he first arrived at Barcelona.

"I would walk into the dressing room and I would look to one side and see [Lionel] Messi and then I would look to the other side and I would see Xavi, [Andres] Iniesta, [Gerard] Pique and Dani Alves", he revived in an interview with Brazilian show "Caldeirao", which was presented by his friend Luciano Huck.

Neymar - part of the famed "MSN" strikeforce alongside Messi and Luis Suarez at Camp Nou - congratulated the five-time Ballon d'Or victor and his bride on Instagram after attending his marriage to Antonella Roccuzzo.

Neymar has won La Liga, Copa Del Rey and the UEFA Champions League with Barcelona and is one of their most important players.

"I thought that I was inside a video game".

"The first month was very hard and to begin with I was embarrassed to speak to Messi, as these guys were idols".

"One day I was playing with them on the games console and then the next day I was there next to them".

Neymar joined Barcelona from his boyhood club Santos in 2013.

Neymar also felt that his performances in Brazil counted for nothing when he made the switch to Barcelona due to the gap in competitiveness.

"You have to prove your worth."You have to fight and I had struggles adapting. It's tricky, but the people around me have helped me a lot, and I'm really grateful to them for that".

"They never stopped cheering their team on, even when they were losing to us; it was impressive".
