Neymar Beats Messi Top Dribbler In Europe

Neymar Jr. has been recognized by Optajean as the top dribbler for the 2019-20 European season.

The 28-year-old led all of the footballers in Europe, averaging 10.7 dribbles per game and 6 successful dribbles per game.

Only Youcef Atal of OGC Nice came close to the Brazilian in the total attempts department with the Algeria international, averaging 8.9 dribbles per game.

Meanwhile, FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi finished behind Neymar with 5.4 successful dribbles per game.

Neymar being creative with the ball is a sight that many Paris Saint-Germain supporters enjoy watching weekly.

The PSG forward left Camp Nou nearly three seasons ago in a world-record deal worth €222 million (£200m/$158m) but has persistently been linked with a return to Spain after a trio of disjointed seasons in France, where he has struggled with injury.

He had a strong reputation as a player, enjoying his greatest successes at Barcelona, where he won three Primera Division titles and was a two-time Champions League winner with the Catalans, earning that title in 2006 and 2009.
