Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe Finish in Top Ten For UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award

PSG forwards Neymar and Mbappe end up in the top 10 for the prestigious UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award this year, the association announced on its official website.

Neymar Jr and Lionel Messi both are in the 4th place with 53 votes. The Brazilian international was Paris Saint-Germain's top performer in the last season as he led the team to a domestic-treble winning campaign and finished with seven-goal contributions in seven UEFA Champions League fixtures.

On the other hand, Mbappe finished in 7th place.

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City) and Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) were all named finalists for the award. Lewandowski is the clear favorite to win the honor.

With PSG’s strong run in all competitions last season, manager Thomas Tuchel also earned recognition by finishing 4th in the voting for the 2020 UEFA Men’s Coach of the Year award.

Bayern’s Hansi Flick and Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp each were named finalists for the award, although one can make a strong case that Tuchel was more deserving of finishing alongside these two managers than RB Leipzig’s Julian Nagelsmann.
