Close pal blasts 'absolutely incredible' Ballon d'Or snub for Juventus star Ronaldo

Lionel Messi finished behind Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo, Antoine Griezmann, and Kylian Mbappe in this year's Ballon d'Or voting.

In 2018, Modric won his third consecutive Champions League trophy with club side Real Madrid and led Croatia to their first World Cup final, losing 4-2 to France.

Five years ago, the Dinamo Zagreb youth product was voted as the worst signing of the season in La Liga after a slow start to life in the Spanish capital.

"As a kid we all have dreams. My dream was to play for a big club and win important trophies", said Modric, above.

Graham and Paul have also said they think Congress should block a pending arms deal with the kingdom. But Asiri, the former deputy head of foreign intelligence, was not on the sanctions list.


In addition, the Los Blancos midfielder has also ensured that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's 10-year hold of the award, was finally brought to an end on Monday night. The potential is scary and Mbappe won the best young player award at the 2018 ceremony.

Real Madrid's Luka Modric arrives with his family for the Golden Ball, "Ballon d'Or" award ceremony at the Grand Palais in Paris.

The win was slightly overshadowed when the host DJ Martin Solveig asked Hegerberg to twerk on stage in celebration. And Salah scored 44 goals in his debut season for Liverpool as well as reaching the Champions League final.

With the result widely known even before the ceremony, World Cup 2018 victor Griezmann said on his way into the building: "It's a pity that a Frenchman didn't win".

She was released after posting bond of $300,000. " Amber Guyger is completely devastated by what happened", the statement said. Upon arriving at the building, Guyger said she went to the wrong floor and walked to the apartment she thought was hers.


"I think it's a victory for football tonight".

Hegerberg played down the incident.

Without getting into the debate on whether Ronaldo or Messi are done winning the Ballon d'Or, Modric's feat will once again instill the belief among other players that they too can have their names inscribed in the elite list of Ballon d'Or winners. "It's all about how we respect women's football".

"Sometimes you have to take tough decisions to stay true to yourself".

"I apologise for my bad English culture level as I didn't know this could be seen as such an offence", he said.
