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.

Modric’s win sparked controversy in Italy, with Ronaldo’s representative, Jorge Mendes, blasting the snub as “ridiculous and shameful”.

However, Ramos believes that Modric, who played a key role in the club’s Champions League victory, deserved the award over the Portuguese.

Indeed, the midfielder’s performances at the World Cup seemed to back up UEFA’s decision, the ex-Tottenham midfielder guiding his Croatia side to their first ever final, where they lost to France.

Portugal, meanwhile, fell to Uruguay in the Round of 16.
