“Thank you to my teammates, coaches and staff who helped me win this trophy again,” Cristiano shared on Instagram.
Whether you think it’s Ronaldo or Lionel Messi as the best soccer player on the planet—although, as Ronaldo’s Instagram proves, there’s no one more shredded, at least—at this moment it’s hard to argue that anyone else in the sport is having a better run than Ronaldo.
The Portugal international needed little time to justify that price tag at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Congratulations are in order for Cristiano Ronaldo!
He has won 24 trophies in his career, including five league titles, four UEFA Champions League titles and one UEFA European Championship.
Since leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title in 2015-16, Ronaldo has had a 365-day run unlike any other.
On top of winning multiple major tournaments—including the European Championship and the Champions League—Ronaldo also took home the biggest individual trophy in soccer, the Ballon d’Or (and he could win that again for his amazing 2016-17 run.).
Cristiano was all smiles as he posed with his award.
