The Brazilian, the world's most expensive player, scored 19 goals in just 20 league games for PSG before suffering a foot injury in February that required surgery.

Neymar - missing as PSG tied up their Ligue 1, Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France titles over the past few months - was also named to the French top flight's best XI of the campaign. "Everybody knows what I came here to do and my objectives".
