Neymar wants MSN for Ballon D’Or
As the announcement of the final 3 for the FIFA Ballon D’Or draws nearer, Barcelona’s Neymar believes the trio of himself, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez should make it up.
The final 3 will be announced today, and Neymar believes their attacking trio, who have scored over 120 goals in 2015, should lead the list.
“I think we deserve to be there for what we have been doing,” Neymar told Globo Esporte. “I would be very happy if Barca’s trident formed the three candidates, for all the history we are making and for all we are winning, the three of us should be there.”
Neymar however made it clear that personal accolades were not his priority, and that he’d rather win with his team.
“What I enjoy doing is contesting trophies and winning them. I have never played to be the best in the world or to win the Ballon d’Or,” he added. “I’ve always played to become a better player than I am, to overcome my own personal aims and be a better footballer.
“Being voted the best in the world is a consequence of that work and if people are talking about me in that way now, then it must be because I am working well.”
