He becomes the first FC Barcelona player to win the award, which has been given out for the past two seasons
The La Liga has named Neymar its player of the month for November. Neymar is currently the top scorer in the Spanish First Division with 14 goals.
While rising to stardom, the Brazilian striker has remained humble ever since he landed in Barcelona for the 2013/14 season, vowing to improve every day while thanking his teammates for their support.

Astonishingly, not only is this the first time Neymar has won the Spanish League’s player of the month award, it is the first time any FC Barcelona player has taken it home at all.
Last season FC Barcelona won the league title (as part of an unprecedented treble campaign) yet, incredibly, not a single player from the team was deemed to have been the best player in the league in any given month.
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. The award has now been given out 21 times.
With Neymar winning the honors in November of 2015, it marks the 15th time the award has gone to a forward, and the third time it has gone to a Brazilian.
