‘I Don’t Deserve The UEFA Best Player Award’ – Cristiano Ronaldo | Do You Agree With Him?
Antoine Griezmann deserved to be named UEFA’s Best Player in Europe, according to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo picked up the gong after leading his country to their first-ever European Championship title and winning the Champions League with Real Madrid.
The Portugal captain got the better of France star Griezmann in both finals before trumping the 25-year-old at the award ceremony in Monaco on Thursday, but believes his Atletico Madrid rival would have been a worthy winner.
“As I said on the stage, he [Griezmann] deserved to win this trophy,” Ronaldo told the media after collecting his prize. “He lost two finals so it was unlucky for him but I think he’s a fantastic player, he’s a good boy, he’s my neighbour – he lives next to me – and he deserved it.
“But he will win for sure one day – I hope so.”
