When the year began, no one could have envisaged that anyone other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo would win the 2018 Ballon d’Or. I mean the two larger-than-life figures have after all utterly dominated the game over the last ten years; winning a staggering five Ballon d’Or trophies apiece.
Luka Modric has however broken the glass ceiling by winning this year’s edition of the Ballon d’Or, becoming the first player other than Messi or Ronaldo to clinch the award in more than a decade.
Although Luka has managed to claim the award during the Messi-Ronaldo era, deservedly so having had a tremendous run in the UEFA Champions League and subsequent 2018 FIFA World Cup, that does not in any way usher in the end of Messi and Ronaldo—as either of the two will probably still win it in future.
It’s hard becoming a top footballer and even harder to be feted as the best in the game. The numbers grow even slimmer for managers, as very few of them ever get to leave an enduring mark in the game.
