Receiving his award, Ronaldo said: “It is not the first time but it is the first time for this award. 2016, wow. I want to thank my team-mates. I was able to achieve what I could. I would like to thank all those who voted for me, the fans the media.
I don’t have anything to add, awards speak for themselves. “I am sorry that some from Barcelona are not with us but that is understandable.”
