The La Liga has named Neymar its player of the month for November.
Astonishingly, this is the first time a Barcelona player has won Spanish League’s player of the month award.
Diego Costa was the first player to win the award when with Atletico Madrid. Since then nine different clubs have been represented in the list of winners but improbably Barcelona are not among them.
Last season Barcelona won the league title on the way to a treble, yet, bizarrely, not a single player from the team won the personal accolade. Barca’s front three of Neymar, Luis Suarez and Leo Messi scored 81 league goals between them yet neither won the monthly award.
The La Liga Player of the Month Award is now in it’s third season, having been given out every month since the beginning of the 2013/14 season.
Neymar is currently the leading scorer in the Spanish First Division with 14 goals.
