Ronaldo all set for Champions League return

Cristiano Ronaldo will go back to Manchester United with Italian champions Juventus in Group H

After winning four titles at Real Madrid, and one with United, Ronaldo aims to end Juventus' 23-year wait for a third European title.

"I can say for sure that this has been the best year of my career, collectively and individually, and I am enjoying the moment", added the 32-year-old, who was announced as the victor of the prize after Thursday's draw in Monaco for this season's Champions League group stage.

But in Mendes' eyes, Ronaldo "carried" Real to their 13th Champions League title and should have won as a result.

Manchester City director of football Txiki Begiristain has admitted his side have been handed a more favourable Champions League draw than fellow Premier League clubs Tottenham and Liverpool but says City must respect their Group F opponents this term. They are very experienced in this competition.

Luka's national team career isn't too shabby either, as he was selected the best Croatian player seven times, was named on the best team of the World Cup in Russian Federation, and received the Golden Ball at the 2018 World Cup. PSV have [former Barcelona midfielder Mark] van Bommel in charge, someone we know really well.

Three-time defending champion Madrid will play Roma, CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen.

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

Luka Modric of Real Madrid and Croatia on Thursday received the accolade of UEFA Player of the Year in Monaco after his Champions League exploits.

"Our main goal is Euro 2020, so Portugal and UEFA Nation's League is not that important and even to lose against Portugal and Spain is no big deal", he said.

This is easily one of the most hard groups to predict for the 2018-19 Champions League group stage.

Consecutively I have played in Europa cup two seasons ago and last season and i am happy for the progression so far in my career.

The trio are in Group C with Red Star Belgrade, European Cup winners in 1991 and making their debut in the group stage.
