Rakitic ignores Messi: Modric is the best player in the world


Barcelona’s midfielder Ivan Rakitic believes that the best player in the world is Real Madrid mdifielder Luka Modric.

Rakitic and Modric were the two key players in the Croatian team for the Russia World Cup tournament, who reached the final of this race, where they lost against France, and ended up getting the silver medal.

The Real Madrid star managed to win the award for the best World Cup player, as well as two UEFA awards for the best midfielder of the year and the best player of the year. He is now named in the top three for FIFA’s award for the best player.

However, agent of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jorge Mendes, said that in his opinion this move was shameful, since they had ignored Ronaldo. Even Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, has announced that Ronaldo was upset that he was not selected for that prize.


“Luka is now the main player in La Liga, he is the best player in the world, and we, Croatians, are very proud of him. I wish him to win the Ballon d’Or because he deserves it. ”

“Those who are jealous of Luka, let them die from their jealousy! I’m proud of him and I’m so happy that I would be if I won those prizes. ”

“We have been together with the National team for 11 years, we have gone through many things together, I love him as my brother. I’m happy that he has decided to stay with the National Team. I do not know how I would decide if he would have retired. ”
