Cristiano Ronaldo’s 16 awards from 2016 proves he’s the GOAT

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum must have a very large mantelpiece to showcase all of her son’s awards, just from the last 12 months, let alone his whole career.

2016 would have been a particularly sweet one for the Real Madrid superstar, with slight murmurings at the beginning of the calendar year that he may well be past his best. However, those who don’t believe in Ronaldo, are the very people that push the former Manchester United star in his quest to be accepted as the greatest footballer of all-time.

A blockbuster 12 months for the Portugal captain, that earned him a Champions League and Euro 2016 winners’ medal added to the collection, also saw Ronaldo collect no fewer than 16 individual awards!

So, there you have it, a 12 months of mainly utterly pointless and redundant awards. But Ronaldo’s ego remains stroked, so the Real Madrid hierarchy and dressing room can sleep easy for the rest of the week, at least – well, until CR7 finds out that Los Blancos are quietly replacing him!
