Sky Sports pundit heaps praise on Luka Modric after bagging The Best award

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes Luka Modric truly deserves The Best Player of the Year award from FIFA after being influential for club and country last term. The Croatia international bagged his third successive Champions League crown with Real Madrid last season and he thereafter went on to star for Croatia at the World Cup where they were eventually runners up to France.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Merson feels there are no question marks regarding the Croatian’s showing at the World Cup and highlighted the semi-final against England as one of his standouts, he said: “Definitely. For the World Player of the Year, the pinnacle is the World Cup and the way he performed at the tournament was just unreal. In the England game, he just constantly kept on running. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone as fit as that on a football pitch. He just kept on going and going and not just running, his quality. I just think he’s top, top drawer.”
