Barcelona boss unconcerned by Neymar goal drought in La Liga

Despite not finding the net in La Liga since February 15th against Levante at the Nou Camp, Neymar’s six league game goal drought is of no concern to Barcelona manager Luis Enrique, Mirror Online reports.

Following the resumption of the league campaign at the start of 2015, the Brazilian wonderkid registered six goals in seven games – including the opener against Levante in a 5-0 thrashing – but since then he has found the back of net on three occasions in his last 10 appearances for club and country.

He missed a host of chances in El Clasico against Real Madrid before the international break and was frustrated on a couple of occasions in Barca’s 1-0 win over Celta Vigo last Sunday as he spurned a good opening in the first half before seeing a goal ruled out for offside in the second.

But with the league leaders doing so well at the moment, Luis Enrique is not bothered about the 23-year-old’s slight dip in form:

“I am not worried at all.” he told reporters (via Mirror Online)

“We are talking about an outstanding player.”

“From what I see in training I am sure his scoring streak will soon return and he will be back on top form.” the Spanish manager added.

Neymar will be looking to get back among the goals as his Barcelona side welcome third from bottom Almeria to the Nou Camp on Wednesday night.
