Modric, Ronaldo and Salah final UEFA Player of the Year nominees

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is on the three-man shortlist for UEFA's 2017-18 Men's Player of the Year award.

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

Real Madrid midfielder Modric, new Juventus striker Ronaldo and Liverpool forward Salah were chosen by a panel of 80 coaches and 55 journalists.

Croatia star Modric then went on to claim the Golden Ball at the World Cup after inspiring his nation to the final, where they lost to France. He also won the Champions League title with Los Blancos.

UEFA have announced their final shortlists for the Men's and Women's Player of the Year awards, with Lionel Messi missing the cut.

Djokovic beats Federer for historic Masters sweep
Djokovic used two service breaks to stun the World No.2 6-4, 6-4 on Monday morning (AEST) to win his first title at the event. The 31-year-old Serb, a five-time runner-up at the event, beat seven-time champion Federer 6-4 6-4.

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.

The Argentinian led Barcelona to La Liga and Copa Del Rey successes in the 2017/18 season, although his club's Champions League quarter-final collapse against Roma likely played on the minds of voters here.

Messi has twice won the award, while he finished runner-up to Ronaldo last season.

The remainder of the players making up the top 10 in the voting were: Antoine Griezmann, Leo Messi, Kylian Mbappé, Kevin De Bruyne, Raphaël Varane, Eden Hazard and Sergio Ramos.

The shortlist was chosen by votes cast by the 80 coaches who took part in European competition last season and 55 sports journalists, with the victor to be announced at the Champions League 2018-19 draw in Nyon.
