The Barcelona president believes the attackers should be recognised for their record-breaking exploits during the club's treble triumph.

Messi, Suarez & Neymar should be Ballon d’Or trio: Barcelona president

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu believes forwards Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar should be 2015’s Ballon d’Or top three. The attacking trio played an integral role in the Catalans’ treble triumph last season, scoring a record-breaking 122 goals between them. Cristiano Ronaldo has won the last two Ballon d’Or awards but Bartomeu does not think the Real Madrid ace should even make the shortlist for 2015.

“Messi, Suarez and Neymar deserve to be the finalists for the Fifa Ballon d’Or,” the Blaugrana supremo stated on Wednesday. Neither Suarez nor Neymar have ever previously made the final three for the Ballon d’Or, but Messi has won the prestigious prize on four previous occasions. Messi bagged 58 goals in 57 games during the 2014-15 campaign and is currently considered the favourite to lift this year’s trophy.
