Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modrić has been crowned the world's best player at Fifa's The Best awards.
The 33-year-old was the favourite going into Monday’s ceremony in London, ahead of former team mate Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah.

The Blancos maestro claimed the award at a star-studded ceremony this evening after what’s been a superb year for the ex-Tottenham man.

I'm happy for him. The guy just enjoy playing his football without noise.

Sanity is being restored back to football awards where the number of goals scored by a player is not a major determinant.


This is a breath of fresh air. cool

Well deserved I must say.

He put out an outstanding performance during the world cup. Hence, he deserves every accolades he is getting at the moment.

We all thought a new kid will break the duopoly of Ronaldo and Messi... Never knew it will be an old head in the game..
Congratulations Modric, well deserving of the award.. But Salah didn't deserve the puskas award though

Luka Modric is the Best player of 2018!

CR7 fans can open the book of LAMENTATIONS ChapteR 7 for more details.

This is a victory for pure football, for Artistry and Impact over Statistics, a victory for the Car Engine over the Shiny Headlights, for Consistency over Periodicity. A win by a player who conducts the whole team on the pitch and dictates the rhythm of the game consistently over one who is anonymous for most of the game and then pops up to score penalties and tap-ins all over the place.

If football were meant to be read only as a statistic, then Figo, Zidane, Ronaldinho, Cannavaro and Kaka will never have won the Fifa World player of the year in 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006 and 2007 respectively.

That is for those, especially some of the indomie generation, who never learnt how to appreciate beautiful football.

I think it is very disrespectful of Ronaldo and Messi to both miss the event. I am very disappointed in them both. For the past 10 Years people have been attending to see you both win, now it is the turn of someone else to win and in their mind, if they are not the recipient, there is no need to attend. Very very disrespectful attitude.

Dani Alves did nothing all year = FIFPro XI, Salah is part of the top 3 FIFA men's Player but not in the FIFPro XI, Salah's goal is better than Bale, Pavard, and Ronaldo's

FIFAFootballAwards should have bn aired on cartoon network. Confused set of people

I'm smelling some conspiracy against CR7... From that euro to that rubbish "red card and now world best...

But expect baba to bounce back stronger this season and "dojuti gbogbo won" and show who is the Greatest Of All Time...

I love modric, fantastic player and had a very good season but worlds best should be Ronaldo... Han Han modric bawo, it was supposed to be 6-5 against the short man... Ojoro people...

Some players are just beauty to watch on the ball.
Maestro Modric orchestrates a beautiful performance every time he's on the ball.
Very well deserved
