The golden foot award is an International football award, given to the players who stand out for their athletic achievements (both as individuals and team players) and for their personality. The award is only given to active players over the age of 29 and the award can only be won once. Ten nominees are chosen by a panel of international journalists based on the criteria that the players are at least 29 years of age and are currently playing football. The winner is then decided by an online poll, where anyone can vote. The winner of this award leaves a mould of his footprints on ‘The Champions Promenade’, on the seafront of Monaco. Luka Modric Wins 2019 Golden Foot Monaco Award, Real Madrid Midfielder Becomes The 17th Player to Get The Honour.
