When you're one of the most wanted footballers on the planet, it must be a bizarre experience. Clubs will pay whatever it takes to sign you, agents are falling over themselves to represent you, fans idolise you.

And then imagine that times a thousand for Cristiano Ronaldo. But the Portuguese superstar hasn't been getting it all his own way. Not if Ivano Modric can help it.

Luka Modric's four-year-old son doesn't suffer fools gladly, he's got a video game console to attend to so you better not waste his time. And clearly, when Cristiano approached him to see how he was doing in the video below, he had other things on his mind.

Just about any other kid would probably freak out if they got the chance to meet Ronaldo.

Remember this guy from the Liverpool v Real Madrid game?

But Ivano just wants to game. Fair play.

The clip was taken backstage at the LFP-Gala, an awards ceremony for Spanish football, during which Ronaldo scooped three gongs - best striker, best player and best goal for his strike against Valencia.

Back to the clip, and Luka was apologetic, telling his teammate that Ivano is a 'little bit shy'. It's a sweet little video. Check it out at the bottom of the article.

As for Ronaldo and Real Madrid, they face Granada on Saturday afternoon before hosting Liverpool at the Bernabeu on Tuesday evening. Ronaldo scored in a comfortable 3-0 win in the reverse fixture and there's little reason to think the result will be any different in Spain.

Real Madrid look a class apart at the moment, and will be full of confidence having followed that Liverpool result up with at 3-1 home victory over rivals Barcelona last weekend.
