Ronaldo Beats Messi To Another Record

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has beaten Lionel Mess to another individual record after smashing his arch-rival in the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year vote, receiving more than three times of the Argentine’s tally.

The 32-year-old won the prestigious award for the second consecutive year, becoming the first player to lift it three times in the process – he first won it in 2013/14.

The Portuguese has now won one more than FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who won the accolade in 2010/11 and 2014/15.

After receiving the award, the Los Blancos star said that he was honoured to win the trophy back-to-back and thanked his coaches and teammates.

« I’m so glad to be here, and honoured to win this trophy again, » Ronaldo said, according to UEFA.com.

« Thank you to my teammates and congratulations to them too. I’m so blessed – thanks also to the supporters of Real Madrid, and everyone who helped me to achieve this trophy. »

The UEFA Men’s Player of the Year award is based on players’ performances during a season for club and country.

In the poll, Ronaldo received 482 votes, with Messi getting 141 and Buffon ending on 109.
