Five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo did not attend Thursday's UEFA ceremony where Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Luka Modric beat his old club-mate to governing body's Player of the Year award.

Last year Atletico Madrid exited early after being drawn with Roma and Chelsea in Group C; Tottenham asserted their authority to win what was initially seen as a tough group including Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund; and Manchester United topped the relatively easy Group A.

The midfielder was instrumental in Madrid winning the Champions League for the third year in a row under Lopetegui's predecessor Zinedine Zidane, Modric also pipping Liverpool star Mohamed Salah to the prize.

England's leading clubs learned their Champions League fate in Thursday's draw.

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

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

Cristiano Ronaldo is going back to Manchester United and Paul Pogba will return to Juventus after the storied teams were drawn together at the Champions League group stage yesterday.

English newspapers highlighted Egyptian global and Liverpool striker, Mohamed Salah's ranking in the competition for UEFA Men's Player of the Year.

The Red Devils boss believes the Juventus superstar will be desperate to net in a Champions League clash, just as he did for Real Madrid in 2013.

The striker beat competition from 11 nominees for the award in honour of his goal in last season's Champions League quarter-final first leg in Turin.

Luka Modric has been named UEFA's Player of the Year ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo. "I don't say that because he is our player, but as a lover of football".

Modric has also been linked with a move away from Real this summer, with Inter Milan said to be keen on him, but he claims to be more than happy in the Spanish capital.
