Modric: “My dreams have come true”

Modric responds to being the first winner since Kaka in 2007 who isn’t Messi or Ronaldo.


“I’m not thinking about that right now. There are so many great players in the world, like the two you mentioned. It makes you feel proud, that your work is paying off. With this, all my dreams have come true!”


Football legends take swipes at Messi & Ronaldo for snubbing ceremony 😳

Fabio Capello, Diego Forlan and Davor Suker criticised the striking pair for missing the awards ceremony in London.

“The absence of Ronaldo and Messi? It is a lack of respect, for the players, for FIFA and for the world of football,” Capello told TVE ahead of the ceremony.


“It’s a pity. Messi attended the gala last year and he didn’t win,” added Forlan. “It’s a pity if it happens the same with Ronaldo than in the UEFA gala.”


Ronaldo famously chooses to opt out of attending award ceremonies in which he doesn’t claim the top prize – failing to appear at the UEFA Player of the Year ceremony in Monaco after Modric won the award and only turning up at Ballon d’Or ceremonies that involve him as the winner.
