The 35-year-old had more votes compared to others, thanks to his sublime form last season when he scored 37 goals and registered 6 assists in 46 matches for Juventus.
The president of the Italian club, Andrea Agnelli, was also awarded the first Golden Foot Prestige.
It was gathered that the prestigious award can only be won by an individual once in his life as it had been previously won by Modric, in 2019, and others like Casillas, Cavani, Buffon and Andrés Iniesta.
Also, Jurgen Klopp has been named in the five-man shortlist for this year’s FIFA The Best Awards after guiding Liverpool to their first-ever Premier League title in over three decades.
Not only did the Reds lifted the trophy at the end of the season, but they also won in style after gapping second-place Manchester City with a staggering 18 points. Klopp will, however, contend for the prestigious prize with four other coaches who were also superb in the outgoing year.
Other managers in this category are Marcelo Bielsa, Hans-Dieter Flick, Julen Lopetegui and Zinedine Zidane.
