Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo believes he deserved to win FIFA’S first the Best Men’s Player award of 2016.
The Real Madrid forward won the UCL trophy , UEFA Super Cup and club world cup with his club and also claimed the Euro 2016 with Portugal.
Ronaldo ended a successful 2016 with his fourth Ballon d’Or and has followed that success by beating Messi to the fifa award.
“It was an unforgettable year at a collective and individual level,” he told El Partidazo. “I think it’s almost impossible to have a better year than this one.
“This is the best moment since I came to Madrid and also with the Portugal national team, which I can’t forget. I’m in the best moment of my career and I’m very happy.
“There were a lot of doubts and campaigns against me, inside and outside football, too. They wanted to hit me from all sides.
“The truth is that The Best prize was for the best, which is me. So I’m very happy.
“For the season I’ve had with both Madrid and the national team, for the trophies and the standards, I deserved to win. It’s that simple.”
