Real Madrid midfielder Modric: Ronaldo has called me...

Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo congratulated him on his UEFA The Best award.

Ronaldo, now with Juventus, missed the ceremony amid claims he was furious with the snub.

Modric said: "I have a good relationship with him, he sent my a message congratulating me for winning it and that he hopes to see me soon.

"I get on well with Cristiano, we will continue to do so, nothing will change. The individual awards are important but the most important is the group.

"I am happy to be (in the list for The Best). The players and coaches decide so we will see."
