Neymar Da Silva Santos Júnior, known simply as Neymar or Neymar Junior, is well-known for being an international football player referred to as one of the best players in the world of his generation. Though he alone is magnificent to watch, when playing with the Argentine superstar Lionel Messi and the Uruguayan national soccer team's all-time leading scorer, Luis Suárez, Neymar shows all his magic.
Messi, Neymar and Suárez formed the famous triumvirate MSN, playing three seasons together in the FC Barcelona between 2014 and 2016. During those seasons they scored an amazing number of 364 goals, and scored 174 assists as well, helping Barcelona win many titles that we'll mention in the next few lines.
The best trident of the 21st century
In El Futbolero USA you’ll find the latest news about the greatest football player he ever shared the pitch with, and the all-time records Neymar was part of.
For starters, the trio formed by Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Luis Suárez is considered the most lethal in soccer worldwide: with 131 goals scored for Barcelona during the 2015/2016 season, they surpassed Real Madrid's trident composed of Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema, and Higuaín who had scored 118 goals in the 2011-2012 season.
The MSN played three seasons together from the Uruguayan's arrival in 2014 until the Brazilian went to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
During the first season together, they scored 122 goals, with Lionel Messi leading with 58 goals, followed by Neymar with 39 goals, and Luis Suárez with 25.
The trident's record was achieved during the 2015/2016 season in which they scored a total of 131 goals, as mentioned above. Of that total, 50 goals came from Suárez, 41 from Messi, and 31 from Neymar.
Together, Neymar, Messi and Suarez won 9 titles for FC Barcelona, including a Champions League, a Club World Cup, two La Liga titles, a UEFA Super Cup, a Spanish Super Cup, and three Copa del Rey. Unbeatable.
