Most overrated player I have ever seen
0 Goals and 2 assists this year I think. 4-7 last year. Baffling Ballon D’or. Consider Beckham, Scholes, Gerrard, Xavi, Iniesta, Viera even Erickson. Would you really do a swap for Modric? Baffling. @GaryLineker
By that logic cannavaro would never have won as well considering he didn’t score goals.
Cannavaro was employed to stop goals not create or score them. Modric is not really a battling defensive midfielder, he is creative, he is employed to score and set-up goals. I agree stats don’t tell the whole story, but helpful to illustrate a point as part of a larger picture.
You’re right, stats do help tell a story but modric has never been a goal scorer or racked up assists. He controls the tempo of the match, wins balls and makes sure you’re team is making the right decision. He’s invaluable in many other ways that don’t show up on a stat sheet.
He is a good player. Best player in Europe? Pull the other one. There have been 10 better midfielders in the last 15 years who have barely had a sniff. It’s simply because he plays for Real. Would Spurs fan swap Erickson for him now? Give me a break.
I see it as an “mvp” of the year and in that instance it’s true. I think xavi and Iniesta we’re deserving for two of Messi’s awards. to compare eras is unfair. Many of the players you mentioned all played at the same time! In my opinion harder to win in that time period.
He’s a top player...but a little overhyped in my opinion
Not deserved if we’re being honest
He’s so overrated😂
Yh got carried by Ronaldo ffs
Ronaldo fans : undeserved ballondor . Lmao even if modric didn't get it, ronaldo wouldn't have a 1% chance of winning it.
Ronaldo ended 2nd, now bounce
Not gonna read all this lol
