Neymar: Lack of goals frustrating

Aung Thu at Muangthong United

Barcelona star Neymar has revealed that his shortage of goals this season is frustrating, but insists it doesn't affect his confidence.

The Brazilian forward enjoyed sensational goal tallies over the last two seasons, netting a total of 70, but has so far scored only nine times in 2016/17.

The 25-year-old has, however, contributed with 17 assists this campaign, including seven in the Champions League.

"It's difficult when you're not scoring, especially when you're a forward, where the expectations are higher," he said in an interview with Red Bull.

"So, yes, it's bad, it's annoying, but it's not my biggest worry. I concentrate on winning matches; it doesn't matter if it's me or a teammate that scores.

"Whenever the game is won then I worry about scoring and ending my jinx – but no, I'm not concerned!"
