Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo ended 2014 on a high note after the 29-year-old Portuguese picked up the Globe Soccer best player of the year Award at the Atlantis luxury hotel in Dubai on Monday night.
The event was part of the Globe Soccer
Conference where the Portugal skipper was joined by his Madrid team-mate James Rodriguez and manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Already this year, Ronaldo has broken the record for the number of goals scored in a single Champions League season as he played an integral role in Madrid securing their 10th La Liga title, while reaching 200 league goals in just 178 games, faster than any other player in La Liga history.
Also, Ronaldo has maintained his better than a goal-per-game ratio across five prolific years in Spain, thus arguably enjoying his finest year yet of his professional career.
European champions Madrid are set to
take on AC Milan on Tuesday in a mega international friendly, in what is expected to be an unforgettable evening of football, with the Sevens Stadium widely expected to be sold out.
The game is in partnership with the Dubai Football Challenge.
