I don’t think Modric deserved it personally. If you look at some of the big games like Bayern home and away, Juve at home, champions league final and even World Cup final he was disappointing in those games. Yeah he also had great games along the way, but I don’t think that’s enough to warrant winning it. Then you look at his form since the World Cup and he’s been poor.
You could arguably say Varane was better. He won the champions league and world cup. France had a tougher draw in the World Cup and he was brilliant.
Just seems like the people who voted desperately wanted to get away from Ronaldo and Messi. Both for me are still the best two.
There have been other midfielders in the past 10 years who have had way better years than Modric has had and not won it. Not just Xavi and Iniesta. Sneijder in 2010 performances were better than Modric this year. Schweinsteiger in 2013 and 2014 was amazing.
