UNFP Trophies: Neymar voted best Ligue 1 player for the 2017-18 season. Champion of France with PSG, Neymar was elected best player for his first season in Ligue 1. And this before Mbappé, Cavani, and Thauvin.
Twenty games, all as a holder, 19 goals, 13 assists: this is the record of Neymar for his first season in Ligue 1 with a shirt of Paris Saint-Germain on the back. Wounded at the end of February at the Clasico against OM, the Brazilian has not since reappeared on the lawns of the French Championship. No matter, 20 outings were enough for Ligue 1 players who decided to reward the former FC Barcelona player with the best player award of the 2017-18 season. Neymar has thus outstripped his teammates Edinson Cavani, a future top scorer in the Championship, and Kylian Mbappé. As well as Florian Thauvin, the only non-Parisian named in this category.
