Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi, has been omitted from the final three-man list for the 2017/18 UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award.

After an incredible debut season, Liverpool’s Egyptian king, Mohamed Salah, has made the final shortlist alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric.

UEFA Champions League winners, Cristiano Ronaldo and his former Real Madrid team-mate, Luka Modric, were the final two in the 3-man shortlist.

Salah, who was named PFA Player of the Year after his successful debut campaign in the Premier League, scored 44 goals for Liverpool last season, while Ronaldo scored 27 La Liga goals to add to his 15 in the Champions League.

The Portugal forward is the current holder of the award having won it three times in the past four seasons.

Modric was a 2018 World Cup runner-up with Croatia and also the winner of the FIFA Golden Ball.

Manchester City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard were both included in the top 10, alongside Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos.
