Neymar and Conte Makes 3-Man List for FIFA Award
Lionel Messi, Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo have been named as the finalists for the FIFA Best Men’s Player award in 2017.
Real Madrid star Ronaldo won the accolade last year, which was the inaugural edition of the event.
The panel to decide the Best Men’s Player included Cafu, Landon Donovan, Enzo Francescoli, Diego Maradona, Carles Puyol, Carlos Valderrama and Edwin van der Sar.
The winner will be announced at the London Palladium on October 23.
Ronaldo, also the favourite for the Ballon d’Or, has been heavily tipped to win the FIFA award again after a 2016-17 season campaign which saw him win La Liga and the Champions League with Madrid.
Meanwhile, Juventuss Coach, Alegri, Real Madrid’s coach Zidane and Chelsea’s coach Conte made the 3-man shortlist for Best Manager of the year award
