Mo Salah named on three-man shortlist for UEFA Player of the Year

Cristiano Ronaldo Salah and Luka Modric

Griezmann is on a three-player list to be named the best Europa League player last season, after scoring twice in Atletico's 3-0 win over Marseille in the final.

The three players who received the most points overall following the conclusion of the voting, in alphabetical order, are: Luka Modrić (Croatia - Real Madrid CF), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal - Real Madrid CF, now at Juventus), Mohamed Salah (Egypt - Liverpool FC). He also won the Champions League title with Los Blancos. Modric, who has been winning hearts at Bernabeu with his top-notch performances also stands tall as the runner-up at FIFA World Cup and the best player of the megaevent as well.

Ronaldo was dominant in La Liga, UEFA Champions Cup and World Cup play.

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.

The Norway global scored 15 goals in Lyon's Champions League winning campaign last season.




His frosty relationship with Real Madrid President Florentino Perez came to a head this summer, with the Portuguese moving to Juventus in a €100 million transfer.

Ronaldo has been in the final three for the award for every year since its inception in 2010, while this is the third time Messi has missed the final three.

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

The victor will be announced August 30, as the group of 80 European coaches and 55 journalists that determines the award tries to nail down the hard question: Who's the best player in Europe?
