Pelé has admitted in an interview to a English newspaper that Neymar is like a son for him: "It's not a surprise his level. I have spoken a lot about him. For me he is like a son. He has played at Santos... I played there too. My son Edison also played at Santos and even was his coach. We are very proud of Neymar". 

This season we are watching Neymar's best level, once he has adapted to Barcelona. Pele said he believes Neymar has improved a lot: "Yes it has improved, but he still has a lot to learn". 

Pele admitted that Barcelona makes Neymar better because the club has incredible footballers: "It must be amazing to play at Barcelona. It's not only Messi and Neymar. Messi is one of the all-time best but he has Iniesta and Xavi surrounding him. They have good players, their level is very high and it's great for football".
