Portuguese Player Of The Year Award: Again Cristiano Ronaldo Wins

Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Portuguese Player of the Year award for a record 10th time.

The 34-year-old collected his latest individual accolade at the annual Quinas de Ouro gala in Lisbon on Monday evening.

“This world is so fast, with the social media, the press, it's been wild,” Ronaldo said in his speech.

“It's been an extremely complicated year on a personal level. Don't let anyone pull you down.

“I can't help but mention that Sporting deserves a little prize. Next time.”

Atletico Madrid startles Joao Felix, Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes and Wolves’ Ruben Neves were all in contention for the award.

But the award went to Ronaldo after he helped Juventus win an eighth straight Serie A title.

Ronaldo is hoping that this is only the first gong to come his way as awards season continues.

The Juventus forward missed out on UEFA’s Player of the Year award, which went to Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk but has been named among the nominees to win FIFA’s The Best award.
