FIFA announced today that Luka Modric, Mo Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo are the finalists to win The Best award.
Luka Modric just won the UEFA Best Player of the Year award so he will be expected to conquer The Best after leading Croatia to the FIFA World Cup Final. Cristiano Ronaldo also completed a brilliant season for Real Madrid but it seems that he’s lost momentum and support after leaving the Spanish capital this summer.
Liverpool’s Salah also led Liverpool to unexpected success in the Champions League but is expected to finish third in the voting.
Zinedine Zidane, Zlatko Dalic and Didier Deschamps are the candidates to win the FIFA The Best Coach of the Year award. Deschamps won the World Cup with France and might the favorite to win the prize even though Zidane was the man in charge of Madrid’s super team which won three straight Champions League titles.
