Cristiano Ronaldo Best Player of the Year
Awarded by: H.E. Mattar al Tayer, Vice President of Dubai Sports Council
The player who has twice achieved the Grand Slam of prizes, winning the FIFA award, the Ballon d’Or and the Globe Soccer award in the same year, making him the only one at the World Cup to have succeeded in this feat: he has been a champion of Europe for three years for his club and twice for his national team. An amazing and beloved football talent, a true role model and hero to millions of fans and aspiring footballers: Cristiano represents the modern prototype of the perfect athlete in an increasingly physical and faster football, where the star player emerges only if work and endurance are combined with exceptional technical skill.
