Luka Modric named fourth best player in the world

Written by  Jan 05, 2023

The statistics institute the International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) every year chooses the best players in the world, and this year they included have Croatian midfield star Luka Modrić in the top five.

Since 1988, the IFFHS started to choose the best players in the world every year, taking into account a number of criteria. Performances, victories, goals, trophies and other criteria at the club and national team level are counted.

In 2020, the IFFHS decided to reactivate its award, in which there is no voting, only counting. Robert Lewandowski won it two years in a row, and now it went to Lionel Messi.

Second this year is Kylian Mbappe, third is Karim Benzema, and fourth place went to Luka Modrić, who won the world bronze medal with Croatia, and the Spanish champion's trophy and the Champions League with Real Madrid. Fifth place went to Manchester City’s striker Erling Haaland.
