Today Luis Enrique, Simeone and Zidane gave press conferences ahead of tomorrow's La Liga matches. Barça and Atlético will face each other at Camp Nou (22h CET) and Real Madrid will host Villarreal (20h CET). 

All three coaches have been asked the same question about Neymar's playing style and wheter he provokes the defenders or not. That's what they said:

Luis Enrique

"I like the way he plays and I hope he'll keep playing like that".

"The rules allow everything he does. Maybe we should focus on the things that happen on the field that are illegal".

Simeone

"I love Neymar, he has a strong personality. He won the gold medal in Rio after being critized a lot. In Barcelona he has found the perfect team to show his talent".

"It's his playing style, every player has its own. He has been critised even for his private life. He has fun, he sings, he dances...and he still plays very well. They can keep critising him but Neymar knows where he has to respond".

Zidane

"I don't think Neymar provokes, it's his playing style. He does things the others can't".
