Ballon d’Or 2019: Piers Morgan slams Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk for Cristiano Ronaldo dig | Football | Sport

The Croatia international won the award thanks to his superb performances for both Real Madrid and Croatia.
Modric said: “I cannot say why someone did not attend – that’s their choice, that is logical, is it not?
