Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo named FIFA Best Men’s Player of Year award

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has won FIFA Best Men’s Player of the Year award.

The Portugal captain has beaten Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar to the gong at a ceremony at London Palladium.

The 32-year-old, who scored 44 goals for club and country in 2017, is the only player to have won this award given that it was introduced in January when the attacker won it for 2016.

Last season, the former Manchester United star helped Madrid make history by winning back-to-back Champions League crowns for the first time and also guided the team to the La Liga title.

Ronaldo’s boss Zinedine Zidane also left the ceremony with an accolade, winning FIFA Best Coach of the Year.
