Modric Comments On Beating Messi & CR7 To The Best Award

Modric Comments On Beating Messi & CR7 To The Best Award

Real Madrid's Croatia midfielder Luka Modric was named Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year for 2018, while Orlando Pride's Brazil forward Marta won the women's award at a ceremony on Monday.

Real Madrid star Luka Mordic broke Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's dominance for the first time in a decade after being crowned the Federation Internationale de Football Association best player of the year.

The award for best women's player went to Brazilian Marta, a runner-up in 2016 and five-time victor of the the award's previous incarnation, the FIFA World Player of the Year.

This is the third year that these awards have been known as "The Best", having previously been a joint venture with France Football's Ballon d'Or between 2010 and 2016, and before that the FIFA World Player of the Year award.

The Fifa Fan Award went to Peru's supporters who caused absolute scenes (in a good way) in Russian Federation this summer as the national team made their way to their first World Cup tournament in 36 years.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Real Madrid star Luka Modric was also named as the UEFA Champions League player of the year at a ceremony held in Monaco, France on Thursday evening, August 30.

"But of course this is also recognition for all the hard work, for the season that I had for Real Madrid and the national team".

Messi didn't have a bad season at all but Barcelona's failure in Europe and Argentina's failure in Russian Federation clearly hampered him against players whose teams did well in at least one of the two competitions.

I would like to give congratulations to Mohamed [Salah] and Cristiano [Ronaldo] for the great season that they had.

In the voting by national team coaches, captains and media, Modric earned 29.05 percent of the votes, Ronaldo finished second with 19.08 percent and third-placed Mohamed Salah received 11.23 percent. "Thanks to my fans all over the world for great support and love that they are showing me". "It would mean a lot to win; it's a dream come true, but I have a long time still to play football".

One could ask why a man won the women's coach award, one could ponder why Salah's goal against Everton was even nominated for the Puskas, let alone winning the award outright.
