Barcelona boss Quique Setien admits he would 'love' to coach 'exceptional' Neymar

Barcelona coach Quique Setien says he would love to work with Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar at the Catalan club.

Neymar left Barca for PSG in a controversial world-record deal in 2017, but the 28-year-old is a transfer target for the Blaugrana once again this summer.

“Without doubt, I would love to be able to coach Neymar one day,” Setien said in an interview with beIN SPORTS.

“Absolutely. He is a player who is at an exceptional level, nobody can place that in doubt.

“i have already fulfilled the dream of coaching the best in the world, which is Leo [Messi]. As for those who could come in, we’ll have to see, but I would be delighted.”

It is unclear whether Barca will have the funds available to move for Neymar in the next window, but the club’s former left-back Sylvinho has backed his compatriot to return to Camp Nou.

“There are lots of conditions behind it, like the financial aspect,” he told Cadena SER. “But who is to say Neymar won’t return?

“He is a very complete player, extraordinary. I love those kid of players – they make your eyes light up. His individual quality is… mamma mia!”
