Ballon d'Or: Messi, Ronaldo have been on top for 15 years, you should be disappointed, says Aurelio to Neymar.
Fabio Aurelio, a former Liverpool defender, feels Neymar should be unhappy that he has yet to win the Ballon d'Or in his career.
According to Aurelio, Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain and Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United, according to Aurelio, have been at the highest level for 15 years.
Neymar's inability to "manage his life better," according to him, has cost him the Ballon d'Or that his brilliance merits.
Neymar is widely recognized as one of the most gifted players in the world, but he has failed to win the Ballon d'Or despite winning titles with PSG, Barcelona, and his first club, Santos.
“I always say that I would be very disappointed if I was him,” Aurelio told GOAL.
The ambition he has, and the quality and talent he has, the fact that he has never won a Ballon d’Or feels wrong. He has all the conditions to do it, but I don’t know what has happened. I don't know. Maybe some things are more important to him than the game.
“You see Ronaldo, Messi, they were there at the top level for ten or fifteen years, and you never heard about problems away from the pitch, but Neymar is always involved in things like this.
He needs to stay away from those things because he’s capable of amazing things. Maybe now, at the age he's at, if you don’t look after yourself, it can come back and haunt you. ”
