Ramos Snubs Ronaldo As Favourite For The Best FIFA Men's Player Prize

The 31-year-old, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner, was left out of FIFA's three-man shortlist for The Best Men's Player 2018 award despite scoring 45 goals in all competitions and guiding the Blaugrana to the Copa del Rey and LaLiga crowns last season. 

Croatia international Luka Modric is said to be the favourite to pick up the accolade this year, but Busquets believes Messi is streets ahead of him and others, and will be until he retires from the sport.

"The best in the world now and for many years is Messi, who is the greatest and will continue to be until he retires," Busquets said at a news conference, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"Modric is spectacular, but Messi has no comparison, with Luka or anyone."
