Ronaldo pips Messi to win Player of the Century


Cristiano Ronaldo has been crowned the Player of the Century, with the Juventus forward beating Lionel Messi to the honour.

Ronaldo won the award with 33% of the votes, while Barcelona great Messi had 20%.

Just six players ended up with a vote of 2% or more.

In chronological order they were: Ronaldo, Mohamed Salah, Messi, Ronaldinho, Robert Lewandowski and Zinedine Zidane.

“Being here with great champions such as Robert Lewandoski, Gerard Pique and Iker Casillas is amazing,” Ronaldo said.

“Iker is an incredible example for everyone, when he had his problem, he made us understand that we need to value what we have. I am 36, but I still love football, my life and my family.

“This award is giving me motivation, it’s amazing to be part of this event, this is a big honour for me. I hope the pandemic will be over next season and more people will be here. Thanks for his trophy, I am really happy. I hope I can continue to play for a few years.”
