The Brazilian superstar has won many individual, club and country prizes.
Neymar Jr, the Brazilian superstar, has always been considered the third to Messi and Ronaldo. He has been phenomenal throughout his career, and he would have surely won a Ballon d’Or if there was no Messi and Ronaldo era. He began his career in club Santos where he rose to prominence and soon caught the eyes of big clubs. Real Madrid and Barcelona, both, were battling for him resulting in him joining the Catalan side. His time with Barcelona is the best yet in his career. He paired up with Messi and Suarez to make the world’s deadliest attacking trio. Neymar won a lot of titles with them. He then moved to PSG for a record transfer fee of £222 million. He has not been in his Barcelona form in PSG but still plays up to his level and is considered one of the best.
Plenty of chances but no finished product
Internationally, Neymar is the joint top scorer of all time with Pele for Brazil with 77 goals to his name. He has been beneficial for his national side but is yet to win a Copa America or a World Cup with them. Throughout he has scored a total of 435 goals in 704 games played.
