Thiago Silva Sends Message To Neymar After FIFA Best Player Snub (See What He Said)
Thiago Silva has sent a message of support to his former club teammate and countryman, Neymar Jr. after seeing the PSG attacker snubbed in the final voting for this year’s FIFA The Best award.
Neymar, who was part of the 11-man list for the Best Men’s Player of the Year prize at the end of November, did not make it to the final three announced by FIFA on Friday.
Neymar helped PSG to a domestic treble last season with the French champions reaching their first-ever Champions League final.
The Brazilian scored 19 goals in 27 appearances across all competitions.
Barcelona captain Lionel Messi, Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski made the final three.
Winner of the accolade will be announced on December 17.
Neymar took to social media and posted an image of himself with the caption: “Is it serious?” after the announcement was made showing he was not impressed.
Chelsea defender Thiago Silva, who spent three seasons playing alongside Neymar at PSG, came consoling his national teammate.
“When you are selected among the three finalists, it will be to win it!” the ex-PSG star wrote in response to his fellow countryman’s post.
