For the owner of the Golden ball voted Ghost

Reporters found a number of contradictions in the list of participants voting for the Golden ball in 2018, according to Marca.

A journalist from the Comoros named Abdu Slaughter, who gave their vote for the PSG striker Kilian Mbappe does not exist, but the edition which he allegedly represented, was closed for more than six years ago.

“We have no record of Abdu Slaughter. I could understand a mistake of the French publication, if the journalist had been another mass medium, but such a person simply does not exist,” said Stefan Ahmadi, President of the Association of journalists in the Comoros.

Note that the “Golden ball” was won by the Croat Luka Modric, and Kilian Mbappe became the best player in the world.

3 December in Paris there was held a ceremony of awarding the winner of the “Golden ball”, which in 2018 received midfielder of the national team of Croatia and real Madrid’s Luka Modric.

After the presentation of awards Modric has shared his emotions and admitted that in the childhood dreamt to play for a big club.

“I want to thank those who helped me, everyone who works at Real Madrid and the Croatia national team. All my family, my wife and children.

When I was a kid, I dreamed of playing for a big club, but the Golden ball was for me.

I’m honored to be among great players. Trying to get used to the idea that I was among exceptional players that have received the “Golden ball”.

This is incredible. Not only because I won this award after Ronaldo and Messi. Among those who participated in the struggle for this award, there are big talents. If I won, it’s only because I did something special.

The key to success? Hard to say… hard Work, perseverance in difficult moments. It is always hard to achieve what you aspire. But sooner or later it will be possible, but you must be ready to seize the moment,” said Modric at the ceremony.

Recall, Modric became the first Croat who won the “Golden ball”. Also, the Balkan became the first player since 2007, who was able to overtake in the race for the “Golden ball” Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
