Jose Mourinho has described Cristiano Ronaldo as the "best player in the Premier League" but believes his Portuguese compatriot needs to win a trophy in order to be crowned player of the year.

The Manchester United winger is favourite to win the Professional Footballers´ Association (PFA) award on Sunday after a stunning season which has seen him score 38 goals.

But Mourinho believes The 23-year-old must get his hands on some silverware before being crowned and told BBC Radio Five Live: "I think the player of the year must be the best of the year but also a winner of the year. I don´t think it can be a player without a big trophy."
