Croatian captain and Real Madrid ace Luka Modrić has finally broken years of dominance of the Ballon d’Or by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Luka Modrić won the most prestigious individual award in football tonight at the award ceremony in Paris.
The midfield star becomes the first ever Croatian to win the Ballon d’Or. And it has certainly been a year to remember for Modrić who won a silver medal at the 2018 World Cup as well as the Champions League with Real Madrid.
He has also won individual medals along the way with the Golden Ball for the best player at the World Cup to the FIFA award “The Best” in September.
