Luca Modric won the Ballon d'Or title in Football by defeating Messi and Ronaldo

Real Madrid player and Croatian midfielder Luca Modric, who has beaten star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, have captured the Ballon d’Or title. According to the BBC report, this is the first Ballon d'Or title of the career of Modric. After almost a decade, any player other than Messi and Ronaldo won the title. Modric won the champions league title for the third time with his club in May this year and after that he helped his team reach the final of the FIFA World Cup held in Russia this year.

After getting the Ballon d’Or title, Modric said, "It may be that some players have won Ballon d’Or at the last few years but now people have finally started looking at another player." Modric said that this award is for all the players who are entitled to get it somewhere but they did not get it. Modric said that this year is very special for them.

33-year-old Luca is Croatia's first football player to win this award. Ronaldo and Messi won this award five-five times in the last ten years (from 2008 to 2017). The last time before these two, Brazil and AC Milan's Kaka won the trophy in 2007. France and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) youth forward Kyllian Mbappe was elected the youngest player of the year.
