Now that Modric won the POTY, I thought I might make this post before anyone tries to compare him to the likes of Xavi and Iniesta.
In case Modric wins the Ballon Dor I just wanna say that even if he does win that, he still won’t be at the level Xavi and Iniesta were. Just remember Modric has won the award when Messi and CR7 are teaching the end stages of their careers and IMO, I still believe no one has truly ended the Messi-CR7 dominance because when they were younger no one could stop them. And tbh I still believe Messi should have won the POTY. He’s been the best player and if the awards are truly for INDIVIDUAL performances then why are TEAM trophies considered?
Just remember one thing, Modric took his team to a UCL final and won and lost a World Cup final and this gave him a POTY award and possibly a BDR. Iniesta won the treble and a World Cup and was MOTM in the WC final and didn’t win a BDO. This was in a time of a prime Messi and CR7. And it shows you how unfair football was to two of the greatest midfielders to play the game.
So please don’t compare Modric to them cause a BDO or “The Best” award doesn’t change the fact that Xavi and Iniesta are miles ahead of Modric and I think most football fans with a brain would agree.
