Neymar: I deserve to be Ballon d’Or finalist
The Brazilian has been in impressive form for Barcelona this year, with his goals against Real Sociedad taking his total for 2015 up to 41
Barcelona’s in-form forward Neymar feels he deserves to be among the finalists for the Ballon d’Or this year.
The 23-year-old also feels team-mates Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez merit a place on the podium for the prestigious award, which will be presented at a ceremony in Zurich in January.
Messi is tipped to win the award for a fourth time, but there’s an increasing amount of people who believe the Brazilian deserves second spot ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo – or at very least a place among the top three.
Neymar continues to lead La Liga’s scoring charts with 14 goals this season after adding two more in Barca’s 4-0 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday.
