He was also the best player in Russia.Ronaldo and Messi had shared the Ballon d’Or between them for the last decade, winning five each. Ronaldo was second this time, while Messi was fifth, behind Antoine Griezmann and Mbappe.“Nobody has the right to compare themselves to them. They are among the best in the history of the sport,” Modric told France Football. “To follow on from them is incredible, and I am proud of it.”Crowned the best young player, Mbappe will hope the future belongs to him.At club level, his PSG side are among the teams desperate to end Real’s run of three straight Champions League titles.The Spaniards beat Liverpool in this year’s final in Kiev with Gareth Bale scoring twice, and will hope to retain the trophy next year with the final in Madrid.Meanwhile, there is lots to look forward to at international level in 2019.Nations League finalsThe new UEFA Nations League has been an instant hit. It will conclude with the four-team finals in Portugal in June, with the hosts facing Switzerland and England playing the Netherlands in the last four.“We want to go beyond where we went last summer, and we’re in the mix for what is a really important staging post in our development,” said England manager Gareth Southgate of that competition.

0Shares0000Chelsea icon Didier Drogba from neighbouring Ivory Coast already sent Weah a congratulatory message.MONROVIA, Liberia, Dec 28 – George Weah emerged from Liberia’s slums to become a superstar footballer in the 1990s, and leveraged his status as a revered figure among the country’s young to be voted president.Weah easily beat Vice President Joseph Boakai in Tuesday’s presidential run-off, the culmination of 12 years spent building political credibility to match his huge popularity. “You know I’ve been in competitions –- tough ones too and I came out victorious. So I know Boakai cannot defeat me,” Weah said ahead of the vote. “I have the people on my side.”The first African player to win both FIFA’s World Player of the Year trophy and the Ballon d’Or, Weah was largely absent from Liberia during the 1989-2003 civil war period, playing for a string of top-flight European teams including Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan.After running unsuccessfully for the presidency in 2005, when he was defeated by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Weah says he has “gained experience” since becoming a senator in 2014.Another fruitless run for the vice-presidency on the ticket of presidential candidate Winston Tubman in 2011 brought him to further prominence among the nation’s voters, many of whom say this time it was “Weah’s turn”.Weah, 51, has put education, job creation and infrastructure at the centre of his platform — in line with Boakai — and had won an unassailable 61.5 percent of votes with more than 98 percent of votes counted as of Thursday evening.– Beloved by young and poor –Weah is set to replace incumbent Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who took over at the helm of Africa’s oldest republic in 2006.Younger voters overwhelmingly favour Weah, who is idolised in his country as “Mister George”.A member of the Kru ethnic group, Weah was raised by his grandmother on a reclaimed swamp in one of the worst slums of the capital Monrovia.“Grassroots citizens identify with George Weah, considering that he is close to their day-to-day experience,” explained Ibrahim Al-Bakri Nyei, a Liberian political analyst at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).His critics say the high school dropout, who later completed a degree, is unprepared to lead a country.“George Weah is a good, humble and respectful person that should not be given the Liberian presidency, because he is being controlled by an evil hand,” said Benoni Urey, a losing presidential candidate who switched his allegiance to Boakai.Urey and others say Weah is being manipulated by Sirleaf so she can continue to push an agenda when she steps down after 12 years in power.But many voters see a poor boy from the slums who made good against the odds.“I believe that whenever we give him a chance, he will be able to give a better Liberia to the youth and the homeless,” Andrew Janjay Johnson, a shoeshiner in a Monrovia market, told AFP.– ‘Vague’ platform –Ex-Chelsea and Man city Star, George Weah has won Liberia Presidential Elections. Weah was contesting the elections after his unsuccessful bid against outgoing president Ellen Johnson, the first female president in Africa.Critics also accuse Weah’s Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of having too vague a political platform, and have challenged his long absences from the senate since being elected in a race he won over Sirleaf’s son.Weah has also fended off barbs over his vice-presidential pick, Jewel Howard-Taylor, the ex-wife of jailed former president and warlord Charles Taylor.Howard-Taylor however is also a respected senator in her own right, bringing him important votes in the key county of Bong, and along with Sirleaf is one of few powerful women in Liberian public life.Weah is married to Clar Weah, and his son, Timothy, signed a professional football contract with Paris Saint-Germain in July.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)
