Luka Modric

In a surprising turn of events, the Croatian team captain and Real Madrid’s midfielder, Luka Modric won the award over his former teammate, Ronaldo and Egypt’s Mohamed Salah.

Luka Modric has finished a UEFA and FIFA double of individual awards in the wake of gathering the Best Men’s Player award.

Modric was incorporated on a 3-man shortlist, and triumphed against rivalry from Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah and previous Real Madrid colleague Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 33-year-old was a star entertainer as Croatia achieved their first World Cup final, and his exhibitions at Russia 2018 saw him win the Golden Ball for the competition’s best player.

Lionel Messi was an eminent non-attendant from the last 3-man waitlist, as neither he or Ronaldo were available at the function in London.

Modric is tipped to end Messi and Ronaldo’s decade-long predominance of the Ballon d’Or, with the champ of that award declared later in the year.
