Modric Wins Ballon D'or 2018 To End Ronaldo & Messi 10-year Duopoly by obembet(f): 10:20pm On Dec 03
Luka Modric wins Ballon d'Or 2018 to end Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's 10-year duopoly.

The Real Madrid midfielder won the ultimate award, outshining his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who now plays for Juventus.

Ronaldo ranks second, followed by Antoine Griezmann who led France to World Cup trophy.

Another 5-time winner Lionel Messi sits only at 5th, behind PSG star Kylianm Mbappe.

Modric has made a perfect performance in the past year. He led Real Madrid to win the 3rd straight Champions League Championship and guided Croatia to the final in 2018 World Cup.

The Croatian being crowned the FIFA Best Men's Player of the Year has significantly changed the football landscape, becoming the first non-Messi or Ronaldo player since Kaka in 2007 to lift such an award. Besides, Modric was chosen in FIFA/FIFPro World XI, and won FIFA Golden Ball and UEFA Best Player.

A well deserved winner.
A player who won the champions league,
led his team to world cup final and won the best player of the tournament deserves it.
This is a dream come true for the midfield engineer himself.
I said it that the world cup will play a pivotal role in this year's balon d'or and some doubted it.
My mind also tells me that if C Ronaldo had stayed at Madrid till now, he would have been the one taking home all these Modric's awards.

FIFA and The French Ballon D'or organizers should apologize to Wesley Sneidjer. As he was what Modric is in 2010.
Champions League trophy with Inter Milan
World Cup Finalist with Netherland
Italian Serie A winner
Scudetto champion
Etc. But Messi was chosen ahead of him.


Congrats to Luka Modric. World Best Player!

Happy for him. Well deserved. Normalty is been restored to the award. Football is not all about the scorers. There are players who work harder to make their teams win and they have been overlooked over the years due to Messi- Ronaldo strong football influence.

Once again congrats to the man Luka Modric.

Ronaldo and Messi do not need a stupid award a.k.a popularity contest to prove they are the best players in the world.

If Modric really deserved this award then FIFA and France football must apologize to Franck Ribery, Wesley Sneijder and Iniesta for robbing them in broad daylight of an award that truly belonged to them during their time.

In conclusion, Messi is GOAT with or without Balon'dor

Messi in 2018:

-Top scorer (45)
-Top assists
-Golden boot winner
-Onze d'or winner
-Pichichi winner
-La Liga best player
-La Liga best forward
-Most MOTM awards in ucl
-Most freekicks scored
- La liga, Copa del rey, spanish supercup winner

Iniesta,Xavi,Sneidjer and Ribery deserve an apology from France Football association.

The truth is that this guy doesn't deserve the award but Fifa and other world football governing bodies are on operation anything but Messi, Ronaldo., of which to some extent its good for football because no champion forever, this is end of an era. Congrats to Modric anyway

Cool. Well, a big congratulations to the INTRUDER. grin grin But I think it was unfair to Ronaldo this time, and maybe Messi. There isn't much spectacular about Modric to claim this title. Well, what do I know. He got many votes from the powers that be in football.

Apparently, he was dashed the award just because the organizers wanted to put an end to the Ronaldo and Messi dominance.


Absolute rubbish... UEFA should apologize to Wesley Sneidjer, Iniesta and Xavi and they must be honoured accordingly too.


Let's see how the latest world best will be able to help Madrid escape relegation or even reach UCL quarter finals this season.
