Modric was part of the Real Madrid team that won the Champions League in May, and led Croatia to the World Cup final, losing to France.

Spain and former Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois won the Goalkeeper of the Year award, and France’s World Cup-winning coach Didier Deschamps took home the Coach of the Year award.
