Luka Modric Breaks Ronaldo, Messi Dominance To Win FIFA Best Player Award

Real Madrid and Croatia star, Luka Modric has broken a decade dominance of both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as he beat the later and Mo Salah to win FIFA Men's best player award.

Ronaldo and Messi have won the awards for a record 5th times each as they've been sharing it within themselves in the last decade with Brazilian Kaka being the last player to win the award in 2007.

In an award event held in London, Luka Modric beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah to win the best men’s player award at the FIFA Best awards.

Modric took the honour following another success-laden season with Real Madrid, in which he helped the club to another Champions League victory for a third consecutive season.

His World Cup campaign also earned many plaudits, after playing a crucial role in guiding Croatia to their first final and winning the Golden Ball.

Earlier in the evening, Salah had been awarded the FIFA Puskas award for his solo strike in the Merseyside derby against Everton, in which he weaved through the defence to curl the ball into the top corner.

Former Chelsea man Thibaut Courtois was awarded the best goalkeeper award, after his Golden Glove-winning World Cup tournament with Belgium.

France boss Didier Deschamps picked up the best manager award after guiding his nation to their second World Cup victory.
