Antoine Griezmann, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe make up the rest of the longlist, though Federation Internationale de Football Association world cup finalist and Federation Internationale de Football Association 208 tournament's Best player victor Modric is a clear favourite to grab the coveted award after captaining Croatia to the final of the World Cup as well as having a pivotal role in winning the Champions League with Real Madrid. "He's like my assistant in the field and I really appreciate Luka Modric for everything this guy did this year and he deserves everything". "It's for all my Real Madrid teammates". It is my teammates from Real Madrid and Croatia. Olympique Lyonnais women's team manager Reynald Pedros won best women's coach.
"The first thing I want say is congratulations to [Mohamed] Salah and Cristiano [Ronaldo] for their great seasons".
Messi didn't make the three-man shortlist and skipped the trip to London.
