Real Madrid Triumph in the Globe Soccer Awards

Real Madrid Triumph in the Globe Soccer Awards


Real Madrid finished the year in the best way possible winning the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan against Kashima Antlers. Now, it’s time to receive several awards recognizing the great year Los Blancos have just finished. Real Madrid won three titles –Champions League, European Supercup and FIFA Club World Cup– so they’ve been the best club in 2016.

At least, this was the prize given in Dubai on Tuesday. Real Madrid won the Globe Soccer Award to the best club in 2016. But it wasn’t the only prize they received, because Florentino Pérez was awarded as the best president and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best player.

Real Madrid president travelled to Dubai to receive the trophies and he spoke about the great year: “It’s difficult to explain what is Real Madrid. We have 11 Champions League, 32 Ligas, 5 World Cups… I arrived in the year 2000, when he won the award of the best club in the 20th Century. What I’ve done if to try to be equal to the challenge and keep feeding the Real Madrid myth and legend. The origin of everything arrived in the 50’s with Santiago Bernabéu and Di Stéfano”, Florentino Pérez said in the show.

The president also gave the award to the best player of the year. “Cristiano Ronaldo, of course”, said Pérez in English. This is another award Cristiano Ronaldo can add to his museum after a perfect year. The Portuguese also won the Euro with his national team and he ended the year with the Golden Ball, the most important trophy individually.

Cristiano Ronaldo had to train in Madrid, so he couldn’t travel to Dubai but he sent a message: “Individually and collectively this has been my best year. We’ve won the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup with Real Madrid, the first important trophy with Portugal, the Golden Ball… I can’t ask anything else”, Cristiano Ronaldo said.

“To the people doubting about me, Real Madrid, the Portuguese national team, I can only say: We’ve won everything. It’s been an incredible year and I’m very happy. I have to thank my team mates from Portugal and Real Madrid, to our coach Fernando Santos, who I hope he wins the trophy to the best coach. I will try to do the same the next year. It’s difficult but not impossible”, Cristiano said.
