Luka Modric on Monday night became the first player in 11 years to be named “The Best” other than Messi or Ronaldo
The Real Madrid midfielder has thanked everyone who voted for him to win the 2018 Best FIFA Men’s Player award, admitting he has had a fantastic year.
Modric played a starring role for his club as Real Madrid won the Champions League once again, whilst he was also crucial in Croatia’s run to the World Cup final.
After the award ceremony, Modric was interviewed by Real Madrid‘s official media, and is quoted by Spanish outlet Marca as saying: “I feel very happy, I’ve worked hard to be where I am today, it was the best season of my career, it’s an unforgettable year.
“All my dreams have come true, I’m working hard to get titles with Real Madrid, I always want to improve, although I’m 33. But it seems I’m getting better every year, it surprises me, better than I expected. I want to continue enjoying and win more, winning the fourth Champions League in a row would be the best.”
