After receiving the award, Modric said he was "honoured" and thankful to all or any the coaches he's worked with getting him to the stage.
"This award is not only mine. It is my team-mates from Real Madrid and Croatia. Without my coaches, I would not need won this and without our family I would 't be the player I am today," said Modric.
However, there seemed to be no place in the World XI for Thibaut Courtois, who has been voted as being the best goalkeeper on the planet, or Salah, a best men's player of year finalist.
