Best Player of the year
The 2011 Award for player of the year goes to Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid, a wonderful forward and key element in Mourhino’s style of play and in a team looking for its umpteenth global success. The talented Portuguese, after breaking the Spanish transfer record following his fantastic experience in Ferguson’s Manchester United, has taken the Liga by storm by smashing all the records for goal scoring. Cristiano’s “golden boots” have seen him top scorer season after season, but in the last season he achieved something that was truly incredible.
Never in the post war period, effectively over the whole history of top level football, has anyone managed to put together a series of multiple scoring games such as Cristiano Ronaldo did in just one year in 14 different matches which included 8 two-goal games, 4 hat-tricks and 2 four-goal games, 36 goals in total in this highly individual enterprise.
