Portugal's Coach disagrees with FIFA as Modric wins UEFA's best player over Ronaldo

Portugal's Coach Fernando Santos, strongly believes Cristiano Ronaldo should win the FIFA Best player of the year award ahead of Luka Modric.

Last week, Modric won the UEFA's player of the year after helping Real Madrid win the Champions League 3 times before helping his country to the FIFA World Cup Final against France.

Speaking about his choice, Santos said: "The voting in the best of FIFA [best player] is not mine. I already casted my vote, if it's up to me, Ronaldo wins and second Modric because that was my vote.

"As to the rest, it's up to the public, the journalists, other managers, many people, so the decision will come out on the exact date and it will be announced.

"As I said, I think Modric is a fantastic player that is why I nominated him as second best player in this new award, but in this vote I think Ronaldo should be the winner for all that he has done during the season and especially in the Champions League."
