Cristiano Ronaldo may not have got his hands on the Ballon d’Or, FIFA’s ’The Best’ award or even UEFA’s Men’s Player of the Year award this year but, on Sunday night, he did win the Best Men’s Player of the Year award at Dubai Globe Soccer Awards.
The Juventus star was in attendance as he collected the award for the sixth time in the last nine years.
“I have to thank my family, my girlfriend, my boy there, Cristiano, my three kids who are waiting for me in the hotel, my friends, my teammates of Juventus and the national team, my agent, all the people here tonight who support this gala,” Ronaldo was quoted as saying by the National.
“I have to say thank you to the Arabic community, which is always great with me. I have to thank Dubai as well – it’s a marvellous place to be, I’m coming every year and I love this place.
“And finally to thank [everyone] who voted for me.
“It’s a great honour to be here and receive this amazing award. I hope to be here next year to receive this award, of course. Thanks to everyone, and a happy New Year.”

Ronaldo looked pretty flash in his white suit but it was on his left hand that we want to focus on.
According to a report in The Sun, Ronaldo was wearing jewellery worth an eye-watering £630k on his left hand.
Let’s take the 200k women’s engagement ring to begin with. It features a big yellow diamond encircled by a halo of white diamonds, set on a diamond encrusted band.
On his wedding finger, he wore a ring with a diamond band costing *only* £50,000.
But the pièce de résistance was the Rolex GMT-Master Ice watch, which costs a cool £380,000.
It’s believed to be the most expensive Rolex ever made and is made in 18 Carat white gold and encrusted with hundreds of 30 Carat diamonds.
How the other half live, eh?
