Modric threatens to end Ronaldo-Messi era as world’s best

WAAR-DUHOK:

 

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s decade-long domination of football’s individual awards are under threat from Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric and Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah when FIFA’s player of the year is announced on Monday.

For the first time in 12 years, Messi is not even nominated among the three finalists for the award after early exits for Argentina at the World Cup and Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Both Messi and Ronaldo have won FIFA’s award in different guises five times each, and the Portuguese can move out on his own after winning a third straight Champions League title with Real Madrid before heading for pastures new with Juventus in July.
