Cristiano Ronaldo Wins UEFA Europe Best Player Award


…as the new Champions League match calendar out

BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Real Madrid and Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo has again emerged the winner of UEFA Best Player in Europe Award.

Winning for the second time, the 31-year-old striker defeated club-mate Gareth Bale and Atlético Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann to clinch the award he first won in 2013/14 season.

Full results indicated Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid/POR); Antoine Griezmann (Atlético Madrid/FRA) 8 and Gareth Bale (Real Madrid/WAL) 7.

The process to arrive at the final judgment included journalists from each of UEFA’s 55 member associations providing an initial list of their five best-ranked players, with the first receiving five points; the second four, and so on.

According to UEFA official website, 10 players with the most points advanced to a second round of voting, which determined Ronaldo, Bale and Griezmann as the final three.

In a live poll during the UEFA Champions League group stage draw, the same 55 journalists then selected their favourite from the three-man shortlist via an electronic system.
