Portugal and Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo was named the world’s best footballer for the second time on Monday, preventing his great rival Lionel Messi from winning the award for a fifth year in a row.

Argentine Messi, hampered by uncharacteristic injury problems at Barcelona late in the year, and Frenchman Franck Ribery of Bayern Munich were the other candidates for the prize, officially known as the FIFA Ballon d’Or.

“Thank you to everyone, my team mates, the national team and my family, to everyone here. Eusebio and Mandela were very important for me, I can’t speak,” an emotional Ronaldo said at the awards ceremony.

Jupp Heynckes, now retired, was named coach of the year for the first time after his Bayern Munich team won an unprecedented Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup treble. By Reuters

  1. u r indeed é best n congrats boy, u’v proved it @ both club n national level n u’v won games n trophies single handedly

  2. CR7 the all rounder….he is not selfish he is committed focused skilful can score can dribble can play with others can smile he is not rough he knows fair play and can lift game at any time can change game any time….i mean he is just super player and is reliable esp when team is down.He is CR7 AND DESERVES THIS RECOGNITION.Messy is nowhere near CR7.Messi cant play with any other players except those Barcelona guyz and thats a pity.He is alwayz lost with Argentina while CR7 SPARKS AND COMMANDS HIS NATIONAL TEAM.SO the two are incomparable

    • Iwe, CR7 akahwina chii ne Portugal yacho. He was lucky coz Messi was out of the picture for the lastb 3 months through injury otherwise haailuma. CR 7 is only a sharp shooter and anogona to position himself, otherwise he is not a complete player anobvisa bhora from mid sa Messi. Haana ma spectacular goals sa Messi. Actually he is more like Ruud Van Niestleroy.

  3. Well done CR7 boy for u are the best but many many thanks to FIFA for awarding PELE this most prestigious AWARD football had been done justice now

  4. “Thank you to everyone, my team mates, the national team and my family, to everyone here. Eusebio and Mandela were very important for me, I can’t speak,” an emotional Ronaldo said at the awards ceremony.

    What about “Mandela”? These guys are fake. I can bet you that he does not know enough about Mandela to be genuinely emotional.

    A skillful player…cant take that away from him
