Ronaldo blames Real Madrid President Perez for Modric win?

Luka Modrić Wins UEFA Player of the Year, Best Midfielder of Champions League

Ronaldo, who guided Real Madrid to a third-successive Champions League triumph in May, was favourite for the award but beaten to it by former teammate Luke Modric.

Ronaldo, who was at United between 2003 and 2009, joined Juve for £99.2m in July after nine years at Real Madrid.

Luka also won the award for the "Best Midfielder of Champions League" in the 2017/18 season, reports Index.hr on August 30, 2018.

He superstar also wants to help the Turin club win the Champions League after twice finishing runners-up in the past four seasons. The Champions League is the most hard European competition and you can see that looking at the group.

Liverpool to face PSG & Napoli in Group C of the Champions League
Consecutively I have played in Europa cup two seasons ago and last season and i am happy for the progression so far in my career. Jurgen Klopp has asserted that he expected a hard group in the Champions League after his side were drawn in a "group of death".

Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo will get the opportunity to face his "beloved" Manchester United as they were placed in the Group H with Juventus. They reached the Champions League after their first domestic title in 2011 and came third in a group that also included Barcelona, AC Milan and BATE Borisov.

Barca, five-time winners of Europe's top club competition, are looking for their first triumph since 2015 after crashing out at the quarterfinal stage last season. "Football is played across four lines of the pitch and that's where Cristiano won".

Arguably, the Group of Death - the toughest group - this year is Group B which will have Barcelona, Tottenham, Inter and PSV vying for the top two places.

Three-time defending champion Real Madrid will start their quest for a record-extending 14th European title in Group G with Roma, CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen.

Bears trading at least 2 1st-round picks for Khalil Mack
With Gruden open to dealing Mack, there was no way Davis was going to veto him after giving him $100 million to coach the team. Assuming the trade eventually is completed, the Bears have landed themselves one of the NFL's elite defensive talents.

"Our main goal is Euro 2020, so Portugal and UEFA Nation's League is not that important and even to lose against Portugal and Spain is no big deal", he said.

His side squeaked into the competition in the final round of the Serie A season last term and the Argentine admitted he was expecting an easier road.

Speaking after United 2-0 win at Burnley, Mourinho said: "Juventus is one of the teams in Europe that invested to win the Champions League because they don't need to invest to win the Scudetto".

The awards were presented at this season's Champions League group-stage draw in Monaco earlier today.

Federer sets up Kyrgios clash at US Open
The wild and unusual incident came during the second set, with Kyrgios already one set down and trailing 3-0. He was heard telling the Australian, " I want to help you ", among other seemingly sympathetic pleas.

Group C: Paris St-Germain, Napoli, Liverpool, Red Star Belgrade. "I am happy because Luka has won, he is a player of ours and he had merit to win it".
