Highlights Of Neymar's Incredible 17/18 Season At PSG Prove Football Comes So Easily To Him

Highlights Of Neymar's Incredible 17/18 Season At PSG Prove Football Comes So Easily To Him

Neymar's highlights from his debut season at Paris Saint-Germain show he'd have been a genuine Ballon d'Or contender if not for injury.

The Brazilian superstar joined PSG from Barcelona in 2017 and the transfer was worth up to €222 million.

It means Neymar is the world's most expensive player and with that comes grand expectations. That didn't bother him though.

Despite not playing after March due to a metatarsal injury, Neymar managed to score 28 goals and register 16 assists in 30 games.

Breaking down the numbers, it means the 28-year-old was registering a goal every 96 minutes of football.

Six came in the Champions League, while 19 of them came in Ligue 1 and it helped PSG to their seventh domestic title.

Neymar offers so much more than just goals though. Often credited as football's ultimate entertainer, he bamboozled full-backs across the league with all kinds of skill.

Thanks to injury, the former Santos man only came 12th in the Ballon d'Or rankings that year.

Fans have reacted to the highlights and in terms of individual seasons, they think it is legendary.

He couldn't resist having a dig on Twitter after the game and it prompted a reply from the Spaniard.

Alvaro said: "My parents always taught me to take out the trash. Go OM always."

That wasn't the end of it. Neymar replied laughing at his rival saying, "And he forgot how to win titles."

Alvaro tried to get under his rival's skin by tweeting a picture Pele alongside the caption: "Eternally in the shadow of the king."

Neymar delivered one final blow with: "And you're in my shadow. Made you famous...you're welcome."
