UEFA published on the official website a list of candidates for the title of the best player of the year in Europe in the season 2017/2018. The list includes 3 players.
Among the nominees are the forward of Juventus Cristiano Ronaldo, the midfielder of Liverpool Mohammed Salah and the halfback of Real Madrid Luka Modric.
The winner will be determined on August 30 in Monaco at the ceremony of drawing of the group stage of the Champions League. Other individual awards for the 2017/2018 season will be also given out at this event.
So who will become the new best player in Europe?
In the last season Cristiano Ronaldo won for the 5th time the Champions League and became for the sixth time in a row the best scorer of the tournament.
Luka Modric won the Champions League, reached with his team the second place in the World Cup 2018 in Russia and became the best player of this tournament.
Mohammed Salah managed to get into the final of the Champions League as part of Liverpool.
We recall that Cristiano Ronaldo was already the winner of the UEFA prize 3 times (2014, 2016, 2017 years). The prize was also won twice by forward of Barcelona Lionel Messi (2011, 2015), but this year the Argentine did not even get on the list of nominees for the award.
