“I have no doubt that I am already a part of football’s history, this has always been my major goal, since I started playing: not only to become a player, but to be a star and to constantly strive to be the best and I did it: the trophies speak for themselves – the titles, the individual awards, and the records.”
Based on an awesome year with club and country, Ronaldo said:
“I have said it a few times: this has probably been the best year of my career.
“Winning the trophy with the national team makes 2016 a very special year as it was a first for Portugal and obviously it plays a big part in it. Real Madrid winning the Champions League and then the Club World Cup, which is the best possible manner to finish the year
“2016 was a spectacular year and a truly special one. I have no doubt that it has been my best since I have started to play football.”
