Paris. Every year since 1995, the best player in the world has been on centre stage. Ronaldo, Zidane, Figo, Ronaldinho, Cannavaro, Cristiano and Messi. Of course Luka Modric is the FIFA World Player of the Year and he deserves the title but it sums up ... it. I saw one outlet billing it as Modric against Philippe Coutinho. I think they need to have a word with their marketing men. In the boardrooms of both clubs they've taken their eye off the ball. Barcelona allowed Neymar to head to Paris Saint ... the modern age. Alas it's the modern age where Coutinho v Modric doesn't quite have the same ring as Messi v Ronaldo!
