Barcelona Fans Can't Believe Lionel Messi UEFA Player Of The Year Snub

Barcelona Fans Can't Believe Lionel Messi UEFA Player Of The Year Snub

What all eye-balls have been waiting for is actually out, yes, of course, we are talking about the much-hyped nominations for this years UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award.

The award - presented to the best player on a club in Europe - will be given to one of Real Madrid's Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo who left Real Madrid for Juventus this summer, or Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

Ronaldo won a fifth Champions League with Real Madrid and a third consecutive trophy.

Salah also is in contention for Champions League Forward of the Season award.

Mohamed Salah is now the first African player and first Premier League player to make the top three of the award since it was first handed out in 2010-11.

The Egyptian, who scored 44 goals for the Reds last season, is up against Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric. Modric's standout performance comes from his success with Real Madrid, but more importantly for guiding Croatia to the World Cup final. 34 of his goals came in 36 appearances in La Liga whilst he netted six times in ten Champions League matches, whilst contributing 18 assists from those 45 matches.

Now the Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo is a frequent victor of UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award and if he takes this honor home again, it will mark his hat-trick of doing so.

Messi has twice won the award, while he finished runner-up to Ronaldo last season. Some of the players that were in the top 10 but were left off of the short list include Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard.

The victor of the prestigious award will be named - along with the UEFA Women's Player of the Year and UEFA Champions League positional award winners - during the group stage draw in Monaco on Thursday 30 August.
