  • Ronaldo Modric and Salah nominated for FIFA gong as Messi misses out

Lionel Messi - who has dominated the award along with Ronaldo over the past decade - was omitted from the shortlist after featuring in the top three for 11 straight years.

FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez recently had some encouraging words for Real Madrid supporters regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's departure to Serie A giants Juventus.

The Argentine also noted that the development will have a negative impact on the European champions.

'And it makes Juventus [one of the] clear favourites to win the Champions League'. "The truth is I was very surprised but Juve are also a very good team", Messi told Catalunya Radio.

Messi says Real are now worse off without Ronaldo and believes the Spanish club's loss is Juventus' gain.

Barcelona have been drawn in a tricky group in this season of the Champions League along with the likes of Inter Milan, Tottenham Hotspur and PSV Eindhoven.

"It's time to win the Champions League", Messi said.

The women's player shortlist is headed by Brazilian forward, Marta, a five-time victor who plays for Orlando Pride in the US National Women's Soccer League.

"I think we have to aim for that, as a club, as a team and as a collective". There's no question Modric deserved to make it, and Ronaldo as well.

"We are concentrating on this because it is possible, we have a squad where we can fight for this competition. At Real Madrid, he was excellently managed".

Ronaldo now owns 51 per cent of the shares of the club.

Messi singled out Arthur, the 22-year-old Brazilian playmaker, for special praise.

Messi admitted that he was "surprised" at the move and believes that Madrid will be weaker for losing his fellow five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

"He has to understand that there will be times when he starts on the bench and then just plays half an hour", Allegri said in a recent press conference.
