So today, I’ll be talking football. Its my first time, so just accept my flaws and mistakes like that oh
First off, I’m a staunch Chelsea fan. Yeaahhh! I have blue blood. Then Barcelona is sort of like my side chick you know.😂. That’s weird for a Chelsea fan, yeah? Well, I love Messi, so there.
Anyway, the balon d’or ceremony held on Monday and for the first time in ten years, the award went to neither Messi or Ronaldo. Luka Modric of Croatia and Real Madrid won it. That’s no news of course.
I’m sorry, but no! I do not think he deserves it. Now, I’m happy that the deadlock has been broken. Its no longer a Messi-Ronaldo affair. But Modric? No!
So you mean to tell me, that in the past 12 months of football, Modric is the undisputable football’s best? If anything, Modric is getting all the attention he’s getting right now because of his performance at the world cup and I’m sorry, I beg to differ, I don’t necessarily think he was the best player at the tournament. I think Griezmann was a better player.
In the champions league, Modric was merely an average player. He didn’t win a single man of the match award in that tournament. Ronaldo, on the other hand, single handedly dragged Madrid to finals of that tournament. How do you now pick Modric over him.
In the domestic league, sometime in the mid season, Modric was not all that impressive. No doubt, he brings quality to the table. His passes are key as a CM, still Messi had more goals, assists, key passes and more motm awards compared to Modric. In fact, Messi to me was the best player in the la liga last season.
This is not to undermine or downgrade the quality of Modric. He’s a world class player anytime. My point is, he’s not just been the very best in the last one year. Maybe not Messi or Ronaldo. But the likes of Griezmann, Mbappe had a better year than Modric in my opinion. I also think that Modric will fall low in the rankings of balon d’or winners.
For those of you that don’t enjoy football, I really don’t get it. Lol.
Chelsea for life!
Have a wonderful week people!
