Modric won the award ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah.

Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard has revealed that he voted for Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, to win the Best FIFA Men’s Player award.

Modric won the award ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah.

It’s the first time since 2006 that Barcelona icon Lionel Messi has not been among the candidates for FIFA’s top award, and also the first time someone else won the award outside Messi or Ronaldo.

The nominees were voted for by national team coaches (25%), national team captains (25%), select media representatives (25%) and via an online vote (25%).

Speaking with reporters at the event, Hazard said, “I voted for Luka Modric, but Mo Salah is my friend so I would like him to win.”
