ronaldo modric salah nominated for fifa best player award

Hany Ramzy, Egypt’s assistant coach says should “hands down” beat and Luka to the 2018 FIFA Best Award.

who netted 44 times across all competitions last season is facing stiff competitions from and Modric to the title of the finest player on the planet which will be decided on Monday September 24, 2018.

Portuguese superstar Ronaldo has claimed The Best gong in each of the past two seasons, with the 33-year-old seeking to complete another notable hat-trick after swapping life at Real Madrid for that at Juventus.

Current Blancos star Modric, who claimed the Golden Ball at the 2018 World Cup, has edged out the likes of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe to also come into the mix, but Ramzy believes his fellow countryman is the obvious choice to see his achievements recognised.

Egypt’s assistant manager told The Sun: “The reason why I think Salah should win the award is because of the journey he has taken to achieve what he has .

“To come back to England after his disappointment with Chelsea and become the Premier League’s top scorer, as well as reach the Champions League final and lead his country to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years, is something unheard of.

“Furthermore, if FIFA were to look at the big picture and consider the hardships and culture barriers each player had to endure in the course of his career to reach this level, then Salah must win hands down.

“He has managed to transcend cultural divides and made a real positive impact in the relations between people of different backgrounds.”

Salah did see his 2017-18 campaign end on a low as he suffered an unfortunate injury in the Champions League final, with a shoulder problem preventing him from making the expected impact on a World Cup stage.

Ramzy is, however, convinced that his standing in his homeland, and around the world, makes him deserving of the most prestigious of personal prizes.

He added: “Mohamed Salah is now considered a real icon in Egypt and the whole of the Arab world.

“He is a true ambassador for Arabic people, a young man with huge ambition who is achieving his goals whilst winning over the hearts of so many people around the world with his exemplary behaviour on and off the pitch.

“I think nobody in Egypt ever imagined that we would have a player in the top three in world football or a player that would win the best player and Golden Boot of the Premier League .

“It really is an honour and source of pride for every Egyptian.”

Salah, after a rare barren run through three games, was back among the goals on Saturday as Liverpool preserved their 100 per cent record in 2018-19 with a 3-0 victory over Southampton.
