Neymar has claimed he hates the competition for the Ballon d'Or
Neymar has been impressive for Barcelona this season, scoring 14 goals and providing 23 assists in all competitions.
The Brazil star is tipped to become the next Ballon d'Or winner – ending Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's dominance of the award since 2008.
However, the 25-year-old has admitted he hates being compared to his Barca team-mate and the Real Madrid star.

"This is one thing that I don't feel comfortable talking about. I really don't like it," Neymar said.
"They [Ronaldo and Messi] are two great players that in the last 10 years maintain the high level.
"They are two great players that I admire a lot and one of them I work with him at my side every day.
"He is the best player that I've ever played with and I've been learning from him.
"I don't know if it is or isn't the right time, I just know that I want to better myself every day.

"Yesterday I went well and today I want to be even better and so on.
"I want to overcome myself every day and I do not want to be better than anyone, I just want to get better and better."
Since 2008 Messi has won the Ballon d'Or five times, while Ronaldo has scooped the honour on four occasions.
