Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, has won the 2018 Ballon D’or award ahead of the duo of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo today.
The Croatian won the award ahead of the duo who are considered as the finest player to have played the game after helping his country, Croatia, to a record second place finish at the just concluded FIFA World cup tournament in Russia.
With the award today, Modrić is now the first player in history to be awarded the World Cup Golden Ball, UEFA Men’s Player, FIFA Best Men’s Player and Ballon d’Or in the same year. Breaking the Messi-Ronaldo duopoly with a clean sweep. Amazing isn’t it???
But this has sparked a reaction from football fans as they feel he is not worthy of the award ahead of the two super stars, Messi and Ronaldo.
Their reactions below:
Am a Ronaldo fan, but I believe Messi deserved better than being 5th.
