The award comes off an incredible year for Luka Modric, who won his fourth Champions League title with Real Madrid in May, before leading his country to a World Cup final in July and being crowned UEFA Men’s Player of the Year last month.

The Best Men’s Player of the Year award, formerly named the Fifa World Player of the Year, has long been dominated by both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, but Barcelona forward Messi failed to make the shortlist for this year’s award for the first time since 2006. Neither player was present in London on Monday.

“This trophy is not just mine, it’s for all my Real Madrid team-mates, for all my team-mates from the Croatia national team, for all the coaches that I have played for,” Luka Modric stated upon receiving the award. “Without them, this would not be possible, i thank them a lot.

This trophy is also for my family, without them I would not be the player and person that I am today. They are my ‘best’.”
