Ronaldo, Salah And Modric Nominated For UEFA Player Of The Year

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Mohamed Salah are nominated for the UEFA player of the year, confirmed on Tuesday.

The winner of the UEFA Player of the Year will be announced on 30th August.

Ronaldo scored 15 goals in 13 appearances for the 3rd consecutive Champions League winners Real Madrid. The Portuguese star also netted  26 goals in 27 La Liga games, and hit two in two in the Club World Cup.

Meanwhile, Mohammed Salah was an integral part of Liverpool last season. He scored 11 goals in 15 UCL appearances and also took his side to the final of the Champions League. Unfortunately, the Liverpool star had to leave the pitch after getting injured in the final. Salah scored 44 goals in all competitions.

Real Madrid’s another star Luka Modric played a vital role in his side’s success last season. He did not grab as many headlines in Europe’s premier club competition, but he was vital to Real’s performance in the final, pulling the strings as Real won 3-1.

Meanwhile, the remaining top 10 has already been decided. Europa League and World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann narrowly missed out on the top three. Lionel Messi also missed out on the top three. Barcelona crashed out from UCL last season after a shocking defeat against Roma.

Kevin De Bruyne, who is out for next three months due to injury is seventh. Raphael Varane is eighth  and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard is ninth. Sergio Ramos, another Real Madrid defender rounds out the top 10.

The previous winners of the UEFA Player of the Year are Messi, Andres Iniesta, Franck Ribery and Ronaldo. Since the award was introduced, the Portuguese star has never failed to finish inside the top three. He was won the word thrice including back to back. This could be his third after a yet another successful champions league campaign.

The winner of the UEFA Player of the Year will be announced on 30th August.
