Neymar wins France Player of the Year Award

Neymar has added to his accolades after he was named as France’s player of the year at an awards ceremony in Paris on Sunday, despite the Paris Saint-Germain superstar missing the last three months of the season due to injury.

The Brazilian, who became the world’s most expensive player after his €222m switch to the French capital from Barcelona last summer, scored 19 goals in just 20 league games for PSG before suffering a foot injury in February that required surgery.

The 25-year-old beat off competition from PSG teammates Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, along with Marseille’s Florian Thauvin.

The award comes amid growing doubts over his future in Ligue 1 after strong links with a return to Spain.

He however pledged his future to the Parisians by modelling their new kit and saying he belonged at the Parc des Princes for the time being.
