La Liga needs players like Neymar: Del Bosque
Spain: The World Cup-winning coach has applauded Barcelona`s capture of the young attacker and is pleased to see another star move to Spain.
Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has taken the time to praise Barcelona signing Neymar, saying his presence will enrich La Liga.
The Blaugrana confirmed on Sunday that they have agreed terms with Santos over the transfer of the Brazil star, who will ink a five-year deal with the club, and the 62-year-old is pleased that Neymar will ply his trade in Spain from next season.
"I really like Neymar. He is an artist and Spanish football needs players like him," Del Bosque told Radio Marca.
"We should not be closing our borders for the very best. We already have players such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo here, who are the best in the world."
Real Madrid had also made an offer for Neymar, but the tricky attacker eventually opted to join Barcelona instead.
The forward will take part in the Confederations Cup with Brazil this summer before joining his new team-mates in Catalunya.
