Ex-Real Madrid GM Valdano: Messi the best, but Modric...

Former Real Madrid GM Jorge Valdano says Luka Modric deserves the world's top individual awards this year.

While declaring Barcelona star Leo Messi as the best in the world, Valdano insists Modric deserves the recognition.

He said, "Messi is the best in the world.

"But I understand that Modric deserves to win the award for best player this year.

"If Modric does not receive the prize for the best player of the year it will be an injustice like the one suffered by Xavi or Iniesta."
