Cristiano Ronaldo` UEFA player of the year 2016/17

25 Aug 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo continues to add to his legend. The Portuguese forward was named UEFA player of the year 2016/17 and received the trophy at the gala for the draw for the Champions League Group Stage held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. The Real Madrid man beat Messi and Buffon in the vote to win his third award after those collected in 2014 and 2016. He is also the only player who has always been among the three finalists since the awards began in 2011.

The Whites forward had another great season, in which he scored 42 goals for Real Madrid, and stood out at the end of the season with great performances in decisive matches. Ronaldo was key on the way to winning la Duodécima with his hat-tricks against Bayern Munich and Atletico, as well as his brace in the Cardiff final. In domestic competition he was also central to winning LaLiga, scoring in the last three matches.

“Every year, the challenge is the same – to win everything, with my club and my national team. I’m so glad to be here and honoured to win this trophy again. I have to say thank you to my team-mates and also congratulate them. To the Real Madrid fans and everyone who has helped me to win this trophy”, he said after receiving the award.
