Ronaldo Speaks After Winning Player Award

Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has spoken for the first time after he was named the Portuguese Player of the Year for a record tenth time.

Ronaldo won the 2019 edition of the award ahead of Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva and Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

Ronaldo spoke about the award at the Carlos Lopes Pavilion in Lisbon as he said that it has been a crazy year.

The Juventus forward was delighted to win the award for the 10th year.

Cristiano Ronaldo has had a phenomenal professional career spanning almost two decades and he has also played for clubs like Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

The 34-year-old spent nine years at Real Madrid between 2009 and 2018.

He emerged as the all-time goalscorer at Real Madrid before he departed the club for Italian Serie A giants Juventus last summer.

Ronaldo joined Juventus in a deal reported to be around €100m.

He went on to emerge as the topscorer at Juventus whom he helped to win an eighth successive league title.

Ronaldo was also influential for the Portuguese national team as they won the inaugural UEFA Nations League.
