“Cristiano Ronaldo’s Candid Take on Messi’s FIFA Win – A Closer Look at The Best FIFA Men’s Player Award Ceremony”


Cristiano Ronaldo has cast a critical eye on FIFA for naming Lionel Messi as the Best Male Player for 2023 and claimed he had not seen the ceremony.

Ronaldo’s response to reporter

During a recent interview, he talked on the global standing and integrity of football leagues with the Portuguese media source Record.
The interviewer asked Ronaldo, “Does it bother you that the Saudi Arabian league is known as a less-viewed league? For example, Lionel Messi recently won the Best Player award and played the entire season in MLS, where European football visibility is also lacking?

To this, the Portuguese superstar responded with simplicity,

“I’m used to it, and I know how these organizations work. Honestly, I haven’t seen the Best Player awards ceremony.”

Following this, the interviewer questioned him about the controversy surrounding Messi being chosen over Erling Haaland as the Best Player, considering Haaland led Manchester City to the European title in the 2022-23 season.

CR7 on Award’s Credibility

CR7 replied, “I think, in a way, these awards are losing credibility. We need to analyze the entire season. It doesn’t mean Messi wasn’t deserving, or Haaland, or even Mbappe. I no longer trust these awards, not because I won at the GLOBE SOCCER, but because numbers are present and numbers don’t lie. They can’t take this trophy away from me because it’s a reality, So it makes me even happier, because the numbers are facts.”

2023 Year For Cristiano

For Cristiano, 2023 was an incredible goal-scoring year, with 54 goals in 59 appearances for Al-Nassr and the Portuguese national team. He surpassed Harry Kane of Bayern Munich, PSG’s Kylian Mbappe, and Haaland to become the top scorer worldwide in 2023. and of course many people are raising questions regarding comparison of ronaldo with haaland and mbappe, because the league in which he playes. there is always a question why compare european league with saudi league.

well, in my opinion straight comparison of these leagues is unfair but yes!! given the fact that cristiano ronaldo is soon turning 39 and at this age he is scoring superb goals. be it his right foot, left foot or header. Typical cristiano ronaldo!! the age at which most of players take retirement, he is still hungry foe goals and delivering for his team Al-Nasar.

Cristiano Ronaldo has predicted that Manchester City will repeat their UEFA Champions League triumph. Ronaldo supported Manchester City’s pursuit of defending their UEFA title from the previous season and winning another trophy in the 2023-24 season.

Diego Maradona Award, Ronaldo

During the Globe Soccer Awards ceremony in Dubai, where Ronaldo won three honors, he acknowledged Diego Maradona after winning the Maradona Award for most goals in 2023. Ronaldo said, “As I said during the ceremony, these are two awards that are not in my collection. So, I am very happy, especially for Maradona, who unfortunately is no longer with us and was a player I always admired.”

Speaking about the awards and the importance of fans, Ronaldo emphasized, “As I always say, fans are crucial because they go to the stadiums to watch us and pay for tickets to watch football. When I played in Europe, I had the opportunity to win some awards multiple times, but in the Middle East, this is the first time. I am happy to know that my season was very good, and receiving these awards is always good.”

Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nassr in January of the previous year, scored 54 goals in 59 combined appearances for his club and national team during the season.
He surpassed elite athletes like Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland.
Cristiano Ronaldo concluded by thanking everyone for the honors and appreciation, mentioning the importance of Diego Maradona and the important role that supporters have in sports.
