REAL MADRID - Ramos: "Modric deserved UEFA Player of the Year"

Published on: 10 September 2018

Sergio Ramos insists that Real Madrid team-mate Luka Modric deserved to win the UEFA Player of the Year award ahead of those with "more marketing", such as Cristiano Ronaldo.

"There are few players that I am as proud of having in my team as Modric," said Ramos, per the Daily Mail .  "He is a great friend and a great player. He is one of the few players who if he wins would make me as happy as if they had given it to me."

"Maybe there are players with more marketing, with a bigger name but Modric deserves that award," he added.
