Portugal and Real Madrid star footballer Christiano Ronaldo retains men’s Fifa player of the year award for second time running. This was his fourth title in last 5 years. He was up against the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar who were also in the race.

The decorated ceremony was held in London Palladium. Thus far, he has scored 33 goals in as many as 37 appearances combining country and club. He was instrumental in his side Real Madrid winning the Champions League Final as he scored twice in that match. He was chosen by combined votes from a jury of international coaches, captains, fans and media representatives. He was asked by a reporter on how many more of these awards is he planning, to which he replied that he has won it 5 times but he still want to win it 2 more times as seven is his lucky number.  He is now tied with the Argentine start who has also won it 5 times so it will be really interesting to see who surpasses it.


One will have to say that it was a well deserved award as he has had an incredible year and leading Real Madrid to its 12th Champions League title was some feat. He was arguably a complete player on the field this year round and while receiving the honours, he thanked everyone including Maradona.

The award night had various other awards to be given and among others the Dutch female footballer Lieke Martens grasped the Best Female player of the year award. She was the one who played a key role in her team winning the Netherlands European Championships this summer. Arsenal’s star player Olivier Giroud was felicitated with the Puskas Award as he scored the goal of the year. His ‘Scorpion Kick’ against crystal palace helped him win this coveted award.

The fan ward was won by Celtic as they honoured the club’s 50th anniversary with a magnificent 36—degrees card display of their unforgettable European Cup win. Among the Best Men’s coach Zidane made the cut. Though he was facing a huge challenge from Antonio Conte of Chelsea, he still made the cut. Best Women’s coach award went to the Dutch coach Weigman who successfully led the Netherlands to lift the European Championships title on their home turf. The final award that was given was of the Best Goal Keeper Award. This was a no surprise as the legendary Juventus and Italian superstar goal keeper Gianluigi Buffon became the first winner of this prestigious award. He helped his team win the title for the 6th straight year and didn’t concede a goal for 6000 minutes of play in the Champions League. This ended up the gala night and star of the show remained none other than Christiano Ronaldo.
