This is getting uninteresting… Cristiano Ronaldo fourth time named the best player of the year. The “Golden ball” went to 31-year-old striker of real Madrid, who managed to circumvent the vote of Lionel Messi and Antoine Grisman.
Note, however, that while Ronaldo is not a leader in the number of statuettes. On one “Golden ball” more still Messi.
“I set a goal every year to win the “Golden ball”. In 2015, I didn’t get it, but this year was amazing,” commented his leadership the Portuguese.
Purpose Cristiano can only envy. This year the player has reached unprecedented heights: it is recognized as the highest paid athlete in history, having signed a lifetime contract with Nike (Cristiano will annually receive $24 million), not to mention the club fees more than 50 million euros per year.
It’s really quite a catch!
