Croatian global and Real Madrid midfielder, Luka Modric, has been named the best European player by the continent's football governing body, UEFA.

Ronaldo's stunning overhead bicycle kick for Real Madrid against Juventus has been voted Uefa's goal of the season.

A board displays the result of the draw for UEFA Champions League football tournament at The Grimaldi Forum in Monaco on August 30, 2018.

Modric, who also won the Golden Ball after leading Croatia to their first World Cup final, was named UEFA Player of the Year for 2017-18.

"We have to keep working, though", added the 32-year-old, who was announced as the victor of the prize after Thursday's draw in Monaco for this season's Champions League group stage. With back-to-back-to-back titles, they are the kings of this competition and continue to dominate.

"Apart from Barcelona, Inter might suffer against Tottenham".

"Cristiano is the best player in the history of football".

Sadio Mane: I turned down Manchester United move
Liverpool FC finished 25 points behind Manchester City in the title race last term to highlight the gap between the two teams. But Mane opted to remain with the Saints for one more season before he made a decision to join Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool .

Jury members chose their top three players per position, with the first receiving five points, the second three and the third one.

Liverpool will find out who they will face during the group stages at 5pm tonight when the Champions League draw is made.

"The favourites to win the Champions League are the same: Real Madrid and Barcelona", he told Omnisport.

"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", Mourinho said after the 2-0 win at Burnley.

Tottenham were knocked out by Italian giants Juventus in the last-16 of last season's competition.

Ronaldo, who did not appear at the ceremony, was awarded the award for best striker chosen by Champions League and Europa League coaches from last season and journalists.

This is easily one of the most hard groups to predict for the 2018-19 Champions League group stage.
