Modric, was an integral part of Madrid's Champions League winning team, before leading his national side to runners-up position at the 2018 World Cup. "This is the best year of my career collectively and individually, so I am really enjoying, we have to keep working". I am sure there is a reason why he couldn't come.

"I expected a hard group, we have a hard group and that's what the Champions League is all about", Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp said.

Cristiano Ronaldo wasn't at UEFA's glitzy awards ceremony on Thursday in Monaco.

Perez told journalists: "I've never seen a club want to buy our 10 without paying".

"I am not happy, I am super happy being here".

"Our criticism concerns a deep bitterness for this decision, because the award refers to the Champions League and not to the World Cup and I believe that Cristiano Ronaldo has given the best emotions of the last edition and also fantastic goals".

Real goalkeeper, Keylor Navas won the award for the best shot-stopper in the continent, and Sergio Ramos took home top defender while Modric won midfielder honors.

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.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping for similar luck today, as Manchester United features in the draw alongside three other Premier League sides: Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool. "Sometimes you feel pressure because of that, but it also makes you work harder to do your job better and better and better".

"Football is played on the field and that's where Cristiano won", Mendes said.

The Champions League has been altered this season, with more places given to teams from the bigger leagues - Spain, England, Germany and Italy now have four guaranteed slots apiece - and fewer from Europe's less glamorous competitions.

The Portugal captain did manage to beat Salah to the UEFA Forward of the Season award.

The 26-year-old Egyptian worldwide was the first Egyptian and African player to be tipped for the glorious award.
