Croatian captain and Real Madrid player Luka Modric won Ballon d'Or three days ago, breaking the years of dominance by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, which has caused reactions all over the world.
Real Madrid made the video of Modric preparing for the award ceremony, showing him flying to Paris, spending time with his family and being really excited and nervous. This behind the scenes video shows how modest and simple Modric is.
Real Madrid posted a question right beneath the video, asking everybody what do they want to tell to Luka Modric and got over 100 answers.
- He didn't just deserve it, he earned it. All I wanna say is congratulations and keep on winning. Madrid and the national team are lucky to have you. Hala Luka! Hala Madrid! – said one of the commentators, while others congratulated and said he was the best. They were some negative comments too, but most of them were positive.
Modric is the first Croatian who has won the most prestigious individual award in football. This was really his year – he who won a silver medal at the 2018 World Cup as well as the Champions League with Real Madrid, accompanied by individual achievements along the way - the Golden Ball for the best player at the World Cup to the FIFA award “The Best” in September.
