Ronaldo wins UEFA award again

Cristiano Ronaldo Portugal captain

Real Madrid and Portugal forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has lifted the UEFA Best Player in Europe Award for a second time.

Ronaldo enjoyed a sensational 2015/16, winning the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid before leading his country to UEFA EURO 2016 glory.

The 31-year-old beat off competition from club-mate, Gareth Bale and Atletico Madrid striker, Antoine Griezmann to land the award he first picked up in 2013/14.

“It’s a great honour. My team-mates are the key – they are the key every year. I work hard myself but without their help this would not be possible. Thanks to my team-mates from Real Madrid and Portugal. [Winning EURO] was different because I’ve won the Champions League three times now. To win something with Portugal was the highlight of my career,” an elated former Manchester United forward said.
