Globe Soccer Awards 2020 – Cristiano Ronaldo Crowned Player of the Century at Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai
World footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pep Guardiola and Robert Lewandowski were all honored at the Globe Soccer Awards last night, 27th December, 2020 in Dubai , with the Juventus striker taking home the rather hyperbolic title of ‘Player of the Century’.
The glamourous ceremony held at the Armani Hotel in the shadow of the world’s tallest building, and was littered with stars from the wide world football.
The 35-year-old, who has won domestic league titles in Spain, England and Italy and Euro 2016 with Portugal, admitted his pride at receiving the accolade, given to the player judged the best between 2001 and 2020.
“It’s a pleasure to win titles,” said Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, at the event. “It’s not easy to be top of the game for so many years. I am really proud, but without a team, great coaches and clubs it is not possible.”
Guardiola also was honoured for a managerial career which has seen him win league championships in Spain, Germany and England, as well as the Champions League twice.
Ronaldo reacting to his victory on twitter said, “Couldn’t be happier with tonight’s award! As I’m about to celebrate my 20th year as a professional footballer, Globe Soccer Player Of The Century is a recognition that I receive with so much joy and pride!”
Elsewhere, the awards for Player of the year and Club of the year for 2020, went to Robert Lewandowski and his Bayern Munich team.
Bayern’s treble of the Bundesliga, Champions League and DFB-Pokal also saw boss Hansi Flick rewarded as coach of the year.
