Neymar believes Cristiano Ronaldo should not be in the final 3 for the Ballon d’Or

Barcelona superstar Neymar has revealed his thoughts on who should have been nominated as the three finalists for the coveted Ballon d’Or award.

The Brazilian icon has been nominated alongside megastars Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi for the award of world football’s best player, and it’s clear who Neymar is tipping to win the award.

"I’m happy to be among the 3 finalists for Ballon d’Or. Leo will win the Ballon d’or. For me, he’s the best”

Whilst the 23-year-old’s humble and honest comments are likely to endear him to football fans around the world, we suspect his latest comments surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo won’t please Real Madrid fans.

The former Santos ace said that he believes Barcelona striker Luis Suarez should have been chosen ahead of the Portuguese captain.

"Messi will win the Ballon d’or. He’s the number one. I think the finalists for the Ballon d’Or should’ve been Messi, Luis and me.”

Neymar’s view reflects a minority of fan opinion, with some beleiveing that the former Liverpool forward should have been picked ahead of the Real Madrid star, who has had a record breaking year in 2015.

The winner of the Ballon d’Or will be revealed at the prestigious FIFA Awards ceremony in January.
