PSG's Neymar kicks off against FIFA's The Best again

Neymar didn't like FIFA's The Best ceremony at all this week. He was already annoyed that he wasn't among the three nominees for the best men's football when he learned that not a single Paris Saint-Germain player appeared in the Best XI of the season. 

Taking to social media, Neymar joked "PSG play another sport," to voice his dissatisfaction that the French champions and Champions League runners-up had been overlooked. 

Last week, remember, Neymar said "Is this serious?" when he saw that Robert Lewandowski, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were the three nominees for the men's prize, with Lewandowski being crowned 2020's best player on Thursday. He promised, with sarcasm, that he would instead dedicate himself to basketball or video games. 

Neymar's tweet last week drew support from former teammate Thiago Silva and his family, such as his father. 

"For us, you will always be in the best leagues, the best clubs and among the best players in the world," his father wrote. 

In the voting for The Best, Neymar was named as the best player in the world by three of the voting captains, includong Thiago Silva and Lionel Messi. 

With 16 points, he ended ninth in the standings, behind teammate Kylian Mbappe, who was seventh with 19 points. 

However, as there were more attackers ahead of them, they didn't make the Team of the Year, with the front three formed by Lewandowski, Messi and Ronaldo. 

Bayern Munich had four players in the XI (Davies, Kimmich, Thiago Alcantara -- who joined Liverpool in the summer -- Lewandowski), Liverpool had three (Alisson, Alexander-Arnold and Van Dijk, not counting Thiago) and Sergio Ramos completed the side.
