'Neymar can easily win three Ballons d'Or'

World News

With Brazil superstar Neymar having returned to full fitness and back in top form, the Paris Saint-Germain forward has now been backed to win multiple Ballon d'Or titles.

Despite enduring an injury-disrupted three seasons with PSG, Neymar has consistently impressed for the Ligue 1 giants since his world record €222 million (R4.4 billion) move from FC Barcelona, scoring 70 goals in 81 appearances.

While the Brazil international's record in front of goal still ranks among the best in the world, his constant injury concerns and a string of off-field controversies have seen his reputation take a knock since his arrival in Paris.

However, after Neymar scored the match-winning goal for PSG in the Coupe de France final last weekend, former Barca star and 1999 Ballon d'Or winner Rivaldo believes the 28-year-old's problems are a thing of the past and that he will finally live up to his potential.

"Neymar has been receiving plaudits for the way he is focusing on his football," the Selecao legend wrote in his latest Betfair column.

"His attitude seems to be just right at the moment and that can only bode well for PSG in the Champions League. He's already 28 years old, so perhaps he felt it was time to concentrate on being again that sensational player who could easily claim a Ballon d'Or or, in my view, two or three.

"It's not easy for a player to exclusively focus on football when they're surrounded by so much noise and distraction, but Neymar looks more controlled in his behaviour now and he's only showing up on the news for his achievements on the pitch, which makes me very happy.

"I'm a great admirer of Neymar and I want him to become the best in the world. I believe that can happen naturally if he manages to keep this new attitude from now on as he is clearly on the right path."
