Few years ago since his emergence from Santos FC,Neymar was widely regarded as the 3rd best footballer in the world after the duopoly of Messi and Ronaldo.
So why was the Brazilian superstar not included in this year’s 30 shortlisted nominees?
France Football revealed their reasons for snubbing the PSG forward:
Janurary 23- First injury of the year
March 6 – Insulted referee after Man Utd match
April 27 – Altercation with a PSG supporter
June 6 – Ankle injury ahead of Copa America
Transfer Window – Failed move to Barcelona
September 14 – Jeered by PSG fans
October 13 – Another injury on international duty
No doubt 2019 has been a very tough year for Neymar. The player was involved in numerous scandals.
Hopefully he bounces back this new season or maybe force his move back to Barcelona by January!
