"Modric for Ballon d'Or? I'd give it to Cristiano" - Casemiro

Casemiro spoke to the media after Real Madrid's Champions League win over Roma, and tipped Los Blancos' former star to win the Ballon d'Or.

"Modric for Ballon d'Or? I'd give it to Cristiano" - Casemiro

Five-star display: "I'd say it was a perfect match, because we played really good football. We controlled the game. We were up against a side who nearly got to the final last year, so we have to be pleased with our performance."

Chances: "If a team create 30 chances then they deserve full credit, particularly against a side like Roma. We were up against a side who are very good tactically."

Real Madrid midfield: "I've been playing with Luka [Modric] and Toni [Kroos] for a while now, and the quality that they have makes my job that bit easier."

Mariano Díaz: "You could see that he was champing at the bit to get his debut and to show why he's been brought in. He's important to us and scored a terrific goal."

Ballon d'Or: "I think the year Luka has had has been spectacular. [But] I'd give it to Cristiano [Ronaldo] for everything he achieved last season."
