Ballon D’Or organisers, France Football, have revealed why Neymar was left out their 30-man shortlist for the award.

Neymar was excluded along with last year’s winner Luka Modric and Harry Kane. 

France Football have now claimed they snubbed the 27-year-old, after what they described as a “black year”.

It is the first time since 2010 that the Paris Saint-Germain forward has failed to make the shortlist.

Neymar was absent with that metatarsal injury as PSG exited the Champions League to Manchester United in the Round of 16, though he did help his side win the French title.
