Rohr, Mikel's votes for Federation Internationale de Football Association best player of the year revealed

Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric has won the Federation Internationale de Football Association men's player of the year award, beating Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo to the prize.

Modric beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah to win the best men's player award, while Brazilian worldwide Marta added a sixth title to her collection.

French World Cup-winning manager Didier Deschamps picked up the men's coach of the year accolade, while Brazil star Marta was named women's player of the year and Frenchman Reynald Pedros won best women's coach of the year.

Salah's Premier League strike against Everton at Anfield last December won the Puskas award for the best goal.

Kaka was the last man outwith Messi or Ronaldo to win the top award in 2007.

It may be recalled that Ronaldo also missed the UEFA Best Player awards which were held in August, where ex-Real Madrid team-mate Luka Modric was deemed as the Best European Footballer of the Year 2018.

France's Didier Deschamps was named coach of the year for masterminding their World Cup triumph in Russian Federation.

The Croatia captain was crowned Fifa's best player of the year, an award voted for by global team captains and coaches.

"I am as happy as if I had won it", said Ramos of Modric's success. It is my team mates' from Real Madrid and Croatia.

"First of all, I would like to give congratulations to Mohamed [Salah] and Cristiano [Ronaldo] for the great season that they've had and I'm sure in the future they will have another opportunity to fight for this trophy".

Top honors for men and women players and coaches were decided by a process that assigned four equal weights to the votes of fans, media, national team coaches and national team captains. They are the two players of the world. Salah was also surprisingly snubbed for the FIFA All-Star Team, with Ronaldo being joined in a forward line alongside Messi, PSG's Kylian Mbappe, and Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Do you think Messi should have won the award this year?

Ronaldo, who wasn't at the award ceremony, ended with a silver medal and Salah's heroics to get Liverpool to the Champions League final earned him the bronze.
