Ronaldo crowned UEFA Best Player in Europe

27 August 2016

The 31-year-old added, "I want to retire at Real Madrid because it's the best club in the world".

After winning the Champions League trophy with Real Madrid and the Euro with Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo was the favourite one to win the trophy.

Ronaldo is on a three-man shortlist for UEFA's Best Player in Europe award, along with Madrid colleague Gareth Bale and Griezmann, with the victor due to be announced on Thursday.

He is also the victor of UEFA's best player in Europe award.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored 57 goals in 61 games last season - 16 of them in the Champions League, just one goal short of his own tournament record.

Wales made it to the semi-finals before falling to eventual champions Portugal in July.

In an interview published by the UEFA website on Wednesday, Ronaldo said the final "was an fantastic experience". In the end we deserved it, we played as a team and our players are to be congratulated.

Ronaldo and Bale both won the Champions League over Antoine Griezmann, so that alone put the two above the Frenchman. He won the title and defeated Gareth Bale and Antonie Griezmann to bag the trophy.

Ronaldo was a bit more cordial towards his rival as he was quoted in his acceptance speech saying, "Of course, I feel happy because it was an unbelievable season". [UEFA Best Player] is a very important trophy, and after winning the two most important competitions at club and global level, to win this individual trophy caps off a remarkable year. Since this trophy has been introduced, I am always there, winning three nominations.

"In terms of trophies it was possibly the best of my career", Ronaldo said.
