Spain head Coach Luis Enrique is the latest man to disagree with the FIFA The Best Award nominations, claiming that snubbed Barcelona star, Lionel Messi is the best in the world.
The Argentine was omitted from the final three of the awards that is scheduled to hold later this month.
The former Barcelona manager said : ” If I talk about Croatia, I would talk about Modric and Rakitic.
“They both deserve individual prizes.
“But if I have to talk about the best in the world, the prize of the best player would be given to Leo Messi, who is one step above the rest.”
Enrique’s Spain team play Croatia in the second game of the UEFA Nations League after their 2-1 win over England.
