Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo rounded off 2019 by winning the prize for best men’s player at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards.

Ronaldo, who came third in the 2019 Ballon d’Or rankings behind Virgil van Dijk and winner Lionel Messi, has now won the award six times out of its nine years of existence.

It also marked a fourth successive triumph at the awards for the 34-year-old, who helped Juventus claim the 2018-19 Seria A title in his first season in Italy, while also playing a key role in Portugal winning the Nations League.

Ronaldo was not the only big-name winner at the event, with Atletic Madrid youngster Joao Felix named as the “best revelation player” while Miralem Pjanic was given the “player career” award.

Meanwhile, Liverpool picked up a trio of victories, with Jurgen Klopp voted best coach, Alisson Becker best goalkeeper, and the ­European champions named best club.
