Cristiano Ronaldo received the Goal 50 Award for the best player in the 2016/17 season, a trophy that the Portuguese forward picked up for the fifth time in his career after winning it in 2008/09, 2012/13, 2013/14 and 2015/2016. The Real Madrid forward received the most votes among directors and correspondents of the 38 editions of the online portal Goal, which produced a list of the 50 most outstanding players of the season.
"It’s a pleasure to receive this award once again, I want to thank everyone who voted for me and above all my colleagues and the technical staff at Real Madrid, without whom it wouldn’t have been possible to win it".
The tie against PSG
"This tie between Real Madrid and PSG is one that could define the whole season. We’re going to come up against a great team with excellent players, whom we respect a lot. But we’ve already shown that we have a very strong, united and experienced group in this competition".

We know we have to be very focused and have two very good games to progress in the Champions League.

"I always look to be at my best level and sometimes things don’t go as we’d like, but experience has taught me that we must continue working hard to achieve our goals".
