    Luca Modric wins Ballon d'Or 2018 award ends the domination of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric was officially crowned the Golden Ball of the Year after a fierce competition with Cristiano Ronaldo of Juventus and Antoine Grisman of Atletico Madrid.

    Continuing the success of the Croatian star this year, Modric has settled for his favor and won the Golden Ball award for the first time in his life, ending a long conflict that has lasted for many years between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who dominated the award over the past years.

    Modric was crowned European Footballer of the Year award in August before returning to the World Player of the Year award for the Golden Ball.

    Modric has made many achievements during the year, both internationally and at the club level. He was crowned champion of the Champions League and Spanish Super Cup last season and led Croatia to second place in the last World Cup in Russia after losing to France.

    Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been crowned five times by fifth place among the candidates for the Golden Ball award, although he has not emerged from the three-name conflict over the last period.

    Modric was the coach of the football club at Zadar in his hometown where he joined him in 1996 and remained in his squad until 2001. Following his remarkable career with the team, the Croatian star moved to Dynamo Zagreb in 2002 to start his career.

    After a solitary season, Modric moved to the Zeneriski Mostar Club of Bosnia where he brilliantly starred in the squad and won the Bosnian Player of the Year award. He was then loaned to Croatia's Inter Zabricić and during one season he starred and led the team to the European Championship and then returned to Dinamo Zagreb again.

    In four seasons with Dynamo Zagreb, Modric has scored 31 goals and 29 goals and contributed to his team's victory in the 2007-2008 Croatian Cup and has become the target of many major clubs, most notably Barcelona, ​​Arsenal and Chelsea from England.

    In the summer of 2008, Modric moved to Tottenham Hotspur, led by Spanish coach Juan de Ramos for six years, for 17 million pounds, scoring his first game against Middlesbrough and suffering a knee injury that delayed his career.

    Modric then returned to a remarkable performance and gave a four-season spell with Spurs, prompting Real Madrid to join him in the summer of 2012 for £ 30 million after arduous negotiations with English club officials.

    During his six-year career in the Meringue jersey, Modric has been able to achieve many important titles, notably the Spanish league, the Spanish King's Cup, the Spanish Super, the European Super Cup, the Champions League and the Club World Cup.
