Cristiano Ronaldo's Sister Uploaded A Very Salty Instagram Post After Luka Modric Won UEFA Award
It's fair to say Cristiano Ronaldo's sister isn't happy with UEFA for naming Luka Modric 'Men's Player of the Year 2017/18'.
As well as the Champions League draw, UEFA announced individual awards; goalkeeper, defender, midfielder, forward and player of the year.
The Real Madrid team cleaned up which included Modric winning the 'Midfielder of the Season' and ex-Real star Ronaldo winning 'Forward of the Season'.
And the two went head-to-head for the coveted 'Player of the Year'.
But it was the Croatian ace who bagged the prestigious gong, pipping Ronaldo despite his goal-scoring heroics last season which included 15 goals.
UEFA's decision to hand Modric the award hasn't gone down well with Ronaldo's immediate family.
His sister has blasted the footballing governing body on social media.

Just a bit salty.
His sister wasn't the only person to question the outcome.
Ronaldo's super agent Jorge Mendes went even further by calling the verdict 'ridiculous' and 'shameful'.
"Football is played on the field and that's where Cristiano won," he told Portuguese outlet Record via Sky Sports.
"He scored 15 goals, carried Real Madrid on his back and conquered the Champions League again.
"It's ridiculous, shameful. The winner is not in doubt, as Ronaldo is the best in his position."
To be fair, Modric also had an incredible season for Real Madrid.
He pulled the strings in the middle of the park, and was a vital cog in Real Madrid's midfield wheel.
While he didn't score as many goals as Ronaldo, Modric's endeavour in the engine room shouldn't go unnoticed.
Was Modric the right winner?
