Monaco, Monte Carlo
August 29, 2019 at 21:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

Football stars shared their thoughts after the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League draw ceremony in Monte Carlo on Thursday.

Group F has already earned the title of this season's 'Death Group' with Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan looking to make it to the round of sixteen.

"It is a pretty similar group to the last year's and I hope this year ends in a different way," said Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti whose side had failed to make it past the group stage.

Last season's best players were also awarded with prizes in different categories.

"I'm really happy and proud to receive this award of course but I think it is more important to win prizes with the team," said Frenkie de Jong who was awarded the best midfielder.
