Can Modrić make it a clean sweep of awards?

By  Oct 11, 2018

The Croatian captain and Real Madrid midfield star has been nominated for this year’s Ballon d’Or and could make it a clean sweep of all the major football individual awards this year. In fact, Modić could become the first player since Kaka to break the dominance of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

A total of 30 nominees have been selected for this prestigious award and the winner will be revealed on the 3rd of December in Paris. The votes are cast by a group of international journalists, with one vote coming from each country.

Modrić had an amazing season last year, and has already won the Golden Ball at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and well as the FIFA award as best man player in the 2017/2018 season. However, he will face stiff competition from Messi and Ronaldo who have won every Ballon d’Or since 2007.
