IT’S HIM AGAIN! Cristiano Ronaldo wins The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award 2017! The recipient of the inaugural The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award in January 2017 has undoubtedly done enough to retain his title in London.
In addition to winning the Spanish league – in which he was third in the scoring charts – and the FIFA Club World Cup last term, the Portuguese added another UEFA Champions League crown to his CV and remarkably finished as the competition’s leading marksman for the fifth-straight season.
By increasingly adjusting his position, pacing himself and recognising the need to conserve resources, Ronaldo is reinventing himself and ensuring that his goalscoring instincts stay at the fore in spite of his advancing age.
“Thank you a lot, to the guys who voted for me. Real supporters, my team-mates, my coach, my president, I have to thank them too.” says Ronaldo at the ceremony.
“We are in England for the first time and I win consecutive awards. This is a great moment for me. I know I have fans all over the world so thanks a lot for the support.
“It’s great to be around great players, and I’m so happy guys!”
