There are seasons that you can be better or not,” Rakitic told Express Sports.

For me in general the best player of the world and maybe the greatest of all time is Leo Messi. It’s easy, you take a boy, and nine of 10 boys are gonna say the same.

“But I think it was the year of Luka, sincerely, I think it’s something that Leo and all the people know, he [Modric] deserves all the awards.

“I don’t need to help him as a good friend of him as I’m, he made everything on himself, nobody gave him anything.
