Ronaldo’s agent criticises decision to adjudge Modric “Player of the Year”


Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has criticised UEFA for giving the UEFA Player of the Year award to Luka Modric. The Croatian has been in sensational form for quite a while now. He won the Player of the Year award with 313 points, 90 points ahead of Ronaldo. Modric was also the Best Midfielder of the Year while Ronaldo was the Best Forward of the Year

However, Mendes thinks that Ronaldo should have won over his former Real teammate. He said, “Football is played on the field and that’s where Cristiano won. He scored 15 goals, carried Real Madrid on his back and conquered the Champions League again. It’s ridiculous, shameful. The winner is not in doubt, as Ronaldo is the best in his position.”

Another person who had the same opinion as Mendes was Giuseppe Marotta, the Juventus CEO. Marotta said, I take nothing away from the decision of journalists and coaches, but I would have voted for Cristiano Ronaldo and I say that as a football fan. It would be nice for us to count some players among those who were given awards, but football is a team sport and we will face this Champions League with great determination.”
