Although the award will not be presented this year, the Frenchman believes that the Orejona would put the Brazilian among the favorites to win the award in the future.
Kylian Mbappé believes that Neymar it would be worth winning the Golden Ball if you take Paris Saint-Germain to the top of the Champions League.
Soccer’s most coveted individual award will not be awarded in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic that put the season on hold for a while. However, Neymar has been making a great exhibition in Europe that, according to Mbappé, could be worth the Ballon d’Or in the future.
“I’m really sure that if we win the Champions League, Neymar could win the Ballon d’Or,” the talented French player told reporters after the win against Leipzig in Lisbon. “He would love to win it and I would love it for him, and that would mean we win the Champions League,” he added.
In addition, the former Monaco highlighted the good relationship he maintains with the Brazilian star on the pitch. “As our coach said, we understand each other very well on the field, it is important for the whole team. It is very comfortable to play alongside a player like Neymar. He is one of the best in the world and he has shown it again today,” he said.
“Today he did not score, but it is not the most important thing. Instead, Di María benefited from his passes,” he closed.
