Neymar in his years at PSG has contributed a lot to the team. He has won three Ligue 1 title for the club. Besides that many domestic tournaments has also been won by him like Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophee des Champions honours. In this season, he has scored 13 goals before the league was suspended due to coronavirus.
