Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has expressed joy for being nominated for Globe Soccer Player of the Year and Player of the Century awards.
He took to his Twitter handle and wrote:
“I’m honored and proud to be among the finalists for the Globe Soccer Player of the Year and Player of the Century awards. It’s always a pleasure and absolute joy to receive such public recognition from football fans all around the world.”
Ronaldo is among the three finalists (Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi) for the Best Men’s Player award 2020.
Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) will announce this year’s winner on Thursday in a virtual ceremony. Juventus star Ronaldo was given his place in the final thanks to 31 Serie A goals on the way to the Bianconeri’s ninth consecutive Scudetto.
He also made history as the first-ever player to score 50 goals in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A. According to media reports, the voting is equally weighted between fans, journalists, national team coaches and captains.
It is worth mentioning here that, Cristiano Ronaldo added another feather to his illustrious cap as he completed his 400th win in Europe’s top five leagues.
Portugal forward attained the feat in his 100th game for the Turin-based club. Ronaldo, of course, starred in the Premier League for Manchester United and then La Liga with Real Madrid before moving across to Italy in 2018.
In his Tweet, he wrote:
“What better way to celebrate my 100th game for Juventus, than scoring two more goals for the team? I’m very proud of reaching this number with the Vecchia Signora jersey, but guess what: I also have my mind already set on the 100 goals for Juve. Fino Alla Fine”
