PSG News: Ander Herrea has backed Neymar to win the Ballon d’Or in the near future. The PSG midfielder was talking to the media after their 1-0 win in Ligue 1 over Lyon on Sunday.
Neymar scored the 87th-minute winner for the Ligue 1 champions amid boos from the fans. The win helped PSG stay 3 points clear of Angers and OGS Nice, who are on 12 points after 6 games.
The Brazilian was keen on leaving PSG in the summer and rejoin Barcelona but the two clubs could not agree on a fee. Herrera, who arrived in the summer on a free transfer from Manchester United, was reluctant to talk about the failed move for Neymar and was focused on heaping praise.
“I’m delighted to play with Neymar. I will not talk about his transfer window. Now, Neymar is with us. He is a fantastic player who can be Ballon d’Or, this season, in a year, in two years. We are very happy. I hope he can play like that all season,” the midfielder said. [via L’Equipe]
Neymar has already said that he will not let the boos and insults from PSG fans affect him this season. The forward is determined to give his best for the club and has asked the fans to back the side.
