Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal and Real Madrid forward, has won the FIFA ‘Best Player’ award for 2016.
Ronaldo won the award on the back of a fantastic year that saw Real Madrid win the UEFA Champions League and Portugal the EURO 2016 championship.
“I will never forget 2016,” says Cristiano Ronaldo, who goes on to thank his team-mates, family and “my whole staff”. He says he’s sorry “some people” from Barcelona are not in Zurich. I’m sure Lionel Messi has turned off his TV by now.
