Cristiano Ronaldo wins 2017 Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year award

25 October 2017

Portugal and Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo won the Men's Best player of the year award for the second time in succession.

Meanwhile, tournament hosts the Netherlands' achievement in winning their first major female title, the Women's European Championship, was recognized with the Women's Coach of the Year and Player of the Year awards for Sarina Wiegman and Lieke Martens respectively.

The other Catalan daily, Sport, has less on the situation, but manage to fit more venom into it: 'Cristiano won The Best yesterday. "He has shown that many times". In the Olympus of the Gods only the geniuses fit: Pele, Maradona, Di Stefano, Cruyff and Messi.

Messi reportedly thought that the exchange would be even worse.

Thank you, the guys who voted on me. Giroud wins best goal Juventus and Italy shot-stopper Buffon topped a three-strong shortlist for the goalkeeper award ahead of Real's Keylor Navas and Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer.

The following months brought more swings and roundabouts for Ronaldo. But then again, he is no ordinary athlete.

'Because Messi, despite having won only one Champions League in the last six years (2015), has shown season by season his magic.

But Zidane is correct. Which is why plenty of people are talking about Gareth Southgate this morning. And, in 2017, Ronaldo's biggest moments were far bigger than anyone else's. Yet it neatly sums up the folly of overemphasising the importance of The Best, the Ballon d'Or, or other such competitions.

Neither Messi nor Ronaldo has won a World Cup - the lone argument against them. The difference has been trophies. The Frenchman's flicked volley with his left foot that went in off the crossbar won ahead of goals from Venezuela's Deyna Castellanos, 18, and South African goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke.

Goals, assists and a ridiculous amount of talent haven't been enough for Messi alone. And in December he will surely win the Ballon d'Or. Thank you to all the fans around the world for the support.

However, second or third to Ronaldo will make no difference to Neymar.

Ronaldo played a typically integral part in Real Madrid becoming the first team to successfully defend the Champions League last season.
