Dec 13,2016


After giving a European Championship title to Portugal and another Champions League trophy to Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo ends the year with winning himself the fourth FIFA Ballon d'Or Award!

The FIFA Ballon d'Or Award that all eyes fixed on has just been concluded, this awards were comprehensive evaluated mainly according to the player's personal performance, collective performance, player quality, career, character and prestige and other criteria. Cristiano Ronaldo won his fourth Ballon d'Or in career after beating Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann, only behind Messi, who won a record fifth award last year. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have now won the past nine Ballon d'Or awards between them.

“For me it’s a great honor to receive my fourth golden ball,” Ronaldo said in a recorded video. “I never thought in my mind to win four times, so I’m so pleased, I’m so happy. I have to thank all my teammates, the national team, Real Madrid, all the people, all the players who helped me win this individual award.”

It is funny that the top three winners were all not not present at the ceremony as Cristiano Ronaldo went to Asia with Real Madrid to participate in World Club Cup after the last weekend's league,Messi went to Qatar with Barcelona to participate in warm-up match, and Geliziman is preparing for the evening and Villarreal's Spanish league.

Ronaldo, who previously won the award in 2008 as well as in 2013 and 2014, when it was officially the FIFA Ballon d'Or, is only the second player to win it a total of four times, trailing only Messi's record of five.

 At the same time, the Portuguese star has become the 1956 Golden Globe Award since the second year in the Champions League, championship and Golden Globe players. The last time to complete this feat people also dates back to 1972, Franz Beckenbauer led Bayern Munich won the Champions League, led Germany to win the European Cup, the end of the year won the Golden Globe.
