Brazil’s national team manager Dunga believes that it is time for Neymar to be crowned as the FIFA Ballon d’Or award winner.
The title has been shared between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for the past seven seasons. However, both these players do not enjoy the same kind of supremacy that they did during this period. Neymar has emerged as a real alternative to the title after having performed well in the last 12 months. The Brazilian striker has especially been more prolific in the second half of 2015. This has seen him make it into the three-man shortlist for the award.

Brazil managed Dunga believes that the national team’s star striker Neymar is now better than both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The latter have been regarded as the best in the world for quite a while now. They have had the FIFA Ballon d’Or award between each other for several successive seasons now. A major reason for their success has been the ability to stay injury free while also maintaining the goal scoring records. This, however, has been diminished quite significantly this season due to various reasons. Messi has been on the treatment table for a while now.

It has not been the case since Lucas has found enough first-team opportunities to develop his game, while the opportunity to play alongside the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cavani has helped him improve his game on a number of situations.
