Do you think that Luka Modric deserves the Ballon D'or ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi?
The football world was stunned on December, 3rd as Luka Modric was crowned the world best player in 2018 beating both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to the individual awards.

There are so many opinions on whether he deserved the award or not because statistically, he didn't do more than Cristiano and Lionel Messi in 2018 except that he reach world cup Final.




I am not a fan. But I've seen him play. He even managed to reach the World Cup finals with his teammates. A lot of footballers are deserving. Let's give him his moment now.

I honestly didn't know him but I am sure he is a great player. Reaching finals is not an easy task and being in the finals give him the edge to bag that award. Michael Jordan once said, "Talent win games but teamwork win championships". He may not be as talented as Ronaldo and Messi but I believe he is a great team player.

I think Luka deserved Ballon D'or ahead of Messi and Ronaldo. Not only goals should be considered when choosing a winner for Ballond D'or. The Luka is a magician, world class midfielders, one of the best ever, surely in top 10 ever. He won Champions League, reached World Cup Final with Croatia. His playstyle is simply amazing. Elegant touch, dribble, pass precision. Luka surely deserved it!

No one has disagreed yet, be the first!


I honestly don’t know enough about the sport to make an informed decision either way. I imagine like most sports these decisions are made by a number of people to determine who wins an award so I’m sure he was seen as the best player for the accolade.

Modric has certianly performed this year and he led Croatia to the World cup finals. He was prolific in his defense and in the midfield. It is good to see him get the Ballon D this time around. I wish there will be newer people contesting for this prestigious award next time around.

I am not a certified football fan. But, I am pretty sure that I've seen him play on the World Cup until the finals. I remember his face and I remember that he's a great footballer. So, I think he deserves it like Messi or Ronaldo

From what I know it is not only the statistics that go into play for the best player awards. There are other factors like voting from the panel of judges. In the pro basketball here, I think there are also the points coming from the votes of the players and coaches. I understand the lamentation of the fans of of Cristiano and Messi but they can wish for their player to win next year.
