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

While Lionel Messi was snubbed for The Best FIFA Men's Player 2018 shortlist last week, Cristiano Ronaldo was named among the final three candidates, but who does Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos feel deserves the award?

Ronaldo made the three-man shortlist alongside Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah and Los Blancos midfielder Luka Modric.

However, despite many tipping the Portuguese to be the favourite for the award, Real captain Ramos has insisted it is the Croatian veteran who should win the accolade.

"Maybe other players have more marketing or bigger names, (but) Modric deserves to win the award," he said, according to Sport.

"We will see who wins. He's a great friend and there are few players I feel prouder of to have in my team.

"He's a huge star. He's one of the few people who (if he wins) I'd be as happy for as if they gave it to me."

Modric won as many trophies as Ronaldo did last season, but his performances for Croatia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup may set him apart from his former colleague.
