Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo's Votes For Best Men's Player Award

       Who should win the Best FIFA award- Luka Modric or Cristiano Ronaldo

"I want to say a few words in Spanish", he continued.

"Everyone has their own reasons", said Modric.

"First of all, I would like to give congratulations to Mohamed and Cristiano for the great season that they've had and I'm sure in the future they will have another opportunity to fight for this trophy".

It's the first time since 2006 that Barcelona icon Lionel Messi has not been among the candidates for FIFA's top award, and also the first time someone else won the award outside Messi or Ronaldo.

Modric's win breaks the Lionel Messi-Ronaldo duopoly of the last 10 years and it follows his player of the tournament prize at Russian Federation 2018 and UEFA player of the year accolade last month.

"It was an unbelievable season, the best season in my life", said Modric.

Since signing for the Reds last summer, Salah has won numerous personal accolades, with his performances for club and country earning him prestigious awards like the BBC African Player of the Year, PFA Player of the Year and Football Writers' Player of the Year.




"I´m still not realising how good a year I had collectively, individually, and I´m very proud for everything I achieved this year and it will be remembered forever". There was no place for his rival, Messi.

NAIJ.com earlier reported that Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah has been crowned the Federation Internationale de Football Association best goal of the season. In August this year at an event in Monaco, Modric was named Europe's best player.

Deschamps, who became just the third man to win the World Cup as a player and coach, beat off competition from Dalic and his former France team-mate Zinedine Zidane, who won a third consecutive Champions League title with Real Madrid before resigning in June.

Salah's goal in Liverpool's 1-1 draw against Everton was a mixture of strength and footwork.

"Congrats Mohamed Salah on your seventh best goal from last season winning goal of the year #baller #topbin #oneofmanyworldies", Milner tweeted.

His compatriot Reynald Pedros picked up the women's coach award after leading Lyon's women's team to a league and Champions League double.
