The midfielder has revealed what Ronaldo told him after the triumph. Modric said: “Cristiano sent me a message, congratulated me and told me he is happy for me and I deserved it,”
Modric told RTP3: “He also said he can’t wait to meet me again. I am happy to be in another big award final, we’ll see what will happen.
“I have a good relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo and we’ll have good relationship in the future too. ‘Individual awards are important but I am not obsessed with them.”
