Neymar on Balo: I'm a big fan

Brazilian striker Neymar has admitted that he is a 'big fan' of Mario Balotelli after the Selecao drew 2-2 with Italy.

The Azzurri came back from 2-0 down to draw with Luis Felipe Scolari's side in Geneva last night, with the Milan forward bagging the equaliser.

And the 21-year-old wunderkid has claimed that he was impressed by his attacking counterpart.

“He is a great player,” Neymar told reporters. “I am a big fan of his. He is a great player and a great person.”
