Italian and Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon has claimed that it is a travesty that teammate and Brazilian superstar has not yet won a Ballon d’Or in his career so far.
Neymar has been one of the best players on the planet for a couple of seasons now, but has always been behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The award was handed to Croatia and Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric.
Buffon, who moved from Juventus to PSG in the summer and missed the chance to play alongside Ronaldo, claims that its a scandal that Neymar has not yet won the award and also believes that he and Frenchman Kylian Mbappe will dominate the game for the next decade.
“I played with a lot of champions and I wanted to play with everyone, even with him [Ronaldo],” Buffon toldIl Corriere della Sera.
“But in Paris it’s not like there are not champions. Mbappe and Neymar have that kind of pedigree.
“I tell Neymar that it’s a scandal that has not yet won the Ballon d’Or and that he should be furious. He and Kylian have a disproportionate talent and can dominate for ten years.”
