Barcelona

, the Brazilian star seems to be enjoying his time at PSG and has very well adapted to the life in Paris.

In an interview with

France Football

, the 29-year-old has praised his teammate

Kylian Mbappe

for teaching him a lot about ‘the way to be French’.

"He taught me a lot about the way 'to be French'… He explained to me the French mentality,"

Neymar said.

"I owe a large part of my adaptation to him, and, therefore, my happiness to be here.”

He added:

"First of all, I was very touched by the man he is.

"Kylian is very considerate, always happy, polite and kind to everyone.

"He is a very beautiful person. That’s why we’ve got along so well since our first contact.

"Then, of course, I had the opportunity to watch him train, to observe his speed, his dribbling repertoire, his intelligence and to see his humility to keep evolving. There, I said to myself: ‘he is our golden boy!’.

"Speed alone doesn't mean anything. You have to be smart to use it properly, and Kylian is. He is not only very smart and fast, but he also has a huge repertoire of dribbling."
