Modric and Marta win Best FIFA player 2018 awards

Luka Modric named best male player at Best Fifa Football Awards

Instead of questioning the nitty gritty of each category on an annual basis, its time that the footballing community asked itself if awards, such as the Best FIFA awards, are truly worth the trouble anymore.

Modric won the Champions League with Real and then played a major role in Croatia´s run to the World Cup final where they were beaten by France.

"It is very important, because for such a small country to win the best player award, it's something unbelievable and that shows other small countries that everything is possible".

Messi didn't have a bad season at all but Barcelona's failure in Europe and Argentina's failure in Russian Federation clearly hampered him against players whose teams did well in at least one of the two competitions.

This year's edition brings an end to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's 10-year domination of the most prestigious award. "I'm very happy and proud... and looking forward to another award later tonight".

Ronaldo had won the award for the last two years with Messi and him dominating the voting over the course of the last 11 years. Dalic, who spent seven years in the Gulf with Saudi clubs Al-Faisaly and Al-Hilal before enjoying great success with Al-Ain in the UAE, inherited a Croatia side on the edge of failing to qualify for the World Cup and took them to the final within 12 months.

"He gave us belief that we could achieve something great in Russian Federation, and hopefully we will do the same for the next generation", Modric said.

Manchester United and Spain goalkeeper David de Gea is among the players to have been named in the FIFA FIFPro World XI for 2018, though there was a notable omission from the team - in Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

Modric said: "He's my friend, I was not bothered by his absence, I won the prize but Mohamed (Salah) and Cristiano are great".

The award was decided by a collection of votes, coming from the captains of each worldwide team, their managers, and designated media officials from each country.

However, Portugal's last 16 exit to Uruguay in Russian Federation and Ronaldo's failure to score in the semi-finals or final of the Champions League opened the door for Modric.

Brazilian Marta clinched the Women's Best Player award for a record sixth time, while Reynald Pedros claimed the Best Women's Coach award for winning the Champions League with Lyon.
