Luka Modric Received Text from Cristiano Ronaldo after Player of the Year Award
Luka Modric enjoyed further success following the World Cup by winning the UEFA Player of the Year title. Hence, he now replaces Cristiano Ronaldo as the new holder of the title. Ronaldo was able to win the Player of the Year award from UEFA in the last two campaigns. There have been rumours that Ronaldo has not been able to receive this news in a good manner and he was nowhere to be seen at the ceremony. Soon after the absence of Ronaldo led to rumours, the player’s agent – Jorge Mendes – claimed that it was a farce that Ronaldo was not a recipient of the title despite having achieved immense success for club and country.
Luka Modric, though, has denied any hard feelings from Ronaldo by saying that the Portuguese superstar congratulated him with a text message.“Cristiano sent me a message, congratulated me and told me he is happy for me and I deserved it. He also said he can’t wait to meet me again,” said Modric. Ronaldo has yet to hit good heights since making the switch to Juventus. After being linked with a switch away from Madrid for majority of the transfer window, Luka Modric remains at the Santiago Bernabeu.
