Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba has said that Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar has the qualities and determination to win Ballon d’Or.
The ex-Ivorian captain said Neymar could win the football biggest individual award as a PSG player but he needs to be patient.
<p>Asked by Le Parisien whether Neymar can flourish in Ligue 1, Drogba said: “I think so. He is a good friend. His presence brings a lot to PSG.</p> <p>“He has the qualities to win the Ballon d’Or in Paris, he has the determination.”</p> <p>He added: “Yes, they are on the right track, but PSG still has some steps to take.</p> <p>“We went through several semi-finals, one final (2008) before getting there (2012). It takes time and, as we can see, it is not necessarily the best team on paper that wins this trophy.</p> <p>“The adventure lasted more than eight years at Chelsea and, winning the Champions League, it was a satisfaction and, above all, a relief.”</p> <p>Neymar joined PSG last summer in a global-record deal worth £198 million.</p> <p>The 26-year-old, who is recovering from a broken metatarsal, has scored 28 goals and provided 13 assists for the Ligue 1 giants.</p> <br />
