Ballon d’Or 2022: He is among top three – Neymar slams organizers over Real Madrid forward

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, has hit out at the organizers of the Ballon d’Or after Brazil teammate Vinicius Jr finished eighth in this year’s rankings.

Real Madrid captain, Karim Benzema, won the prize for the first time ever on Monday.

Bayern Munich’s Sadio Mane and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne finished second and third respectively.

Robert Lewandowski, Mohamed Salah, Kylian Mbappe and Thibaut Courtois followed them, with Madrid winger Vinicius completing the top 10 along with Luka Modric and Erling Haaland.

“Benzema, well deserved, crack. Now for Vinicius, finishing eighth is not right. At the very least he is among the top three,” Neymar wrote on Twitter.

Vinicius, 22, starred in the Madrid team that won LaLiga, the Champions League and the Spanish Supercopa last season.

He ended the campaign with 22 goals in 52 appearances, including the solitary strike in May’s 1-0 Champions League final win over Liverpool.
