Cristiano Ronaldo's has been dubbed an egotist after his recent decision to snub the UEFA awards ceremony, where his former teammate Luka Modric won the Best Men's Player award.
The Five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo did not attend Thursday's Uefa ceremony where Real Madrid and Croatia midfielder Modric pipped him to the prestigious honour.
Criticism followed from the 33-year-old's agent Jorge Mendes, his new president at Juventus Beppe Marotta and even Ronaldo's sister Katia Aveiro.
While reports surfaced Ronaldo was informed of the decision and then opted not to attend.
"Ronaldo not attending UEFA ceremony and those comments about Luka winning it... it is not worthy of my comment," head coach Zlatko Dalic told Sportske Novosti.
"It only proves what I keep saying: Ronaldo is egoist and I'd never want him in my team.
"He is kind of player that only thinks, 'No matter if we lose, the only thing that matters is that I score a goal!'"
