Twitter reactions to Modric’s comments about Ronaldo and Messi snubbing the award ceremony.
Luka Modric won the Balon d'or he didn't deserve and went on criticizing Messi and Ronaldo for not attending his Balon d'or ceremony.😎 https://t.co/tCPXjTm3yn

Regardless of if Modric deserved the Ballon d'Or, he has a very good point about Messi and Ronaldo not turning up on the night of the award.

Not with regards to Messi. He came fifth (lol). No real reason to turn up.
Ronaldo on the other hand, was in the top 3 and was Modric's teammate, so he had no excuse for not being there.

It would have value if you had deserved to win it… Ronaldo and Messi were way ahead of you from their stellar performances last season too. And you fucking disrespecting GOATS now…
From Underrated to Overrated sums up you

Lol, it's actually insulting for them to be in a room where there was going to be an announcement that Modric was better than Ronaldo and Messi in the year under review. No one likes to be disrespected.

For Ronaldo ok, but Messi was 5th why on Earth would he have to be there ???

It has value when the best players win them. Messi went when Ronaldo won and Ronaldo went when Messi won. NEITHER turned up to your fake BS. You're simply not the best player 2018 and that's a fact.

Still putting respect on this guys name, however, Messi and Ronaldo are a cut above those. We have players at this level today; KDB, Modric, Aguero, Silva, Salah, Hazard, Bale and probably a fair few I've missed.

Modric is not even in the top 10 in the world

Xavi: "There was something beautiful about Modric winning the Ballon D'or…but…"
[wait for it]
"…I would give it to Messi every year."
