Cristiano Ronaldo's sister Katia Aveiro has aimed a dig at Luka Modric after the Real Madrid midfielder won the UEFA Player of the Year award.

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to return to former home Manchester United with Juventus in the group stage of the Champions League which was finalised on August 30, but that isn't the main talking point.

Former Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, now at Juventus, claimed the Forward of the Season Award as well. "The important thing is Real Madrid".

Juventus now face Manchester United, Valencia and Young Boys in the Champions League groups stage.

Changes brought in for this season mean half of the clubs in the group stage were allocated to the top four sides in the four best-ranked leagues: Spain, England, Germany and Italy.

Modric is only the third player other than Ronaldo and Messi to win the award since it was introduced in 2011.

His teammate Sergio Ramos won the Defender of the Season Award, while Modric, who had a stellar year which also saw him win the 2018 World Cup's Golden Ball, was named the Midfielder of the Season.




"He scored 15 goals, carrying Real Madrid to the Champions League win once again", Mendes told Portuguese daily Record.

"It's ridiculous, shameful. The victor is not in doubt, as Ronaldo is the best in his position", CR7's agent said. "We played the quarter-finals, we had the perception we could have been even better so we will try to do that this season".

Begiristain added: "The Champions League is very important every season".

"I would like to dedicate this to my coaches and my team-mates, " said Modric.

UEFA also named the Women's Player of the Year at the ceremony, with Wolfsburg's Pernille Harder beating Lyon duo Ada Hegerberg and Amandine Henry to the top prize.

Modric and his Real Madrid side face last season's semi-finalists Roma, CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen.
