Cristiano Ronaldo vows to play on for ‘more years’ as Juventus superstar is named ‘Player of the Century’ at Globe Soccer Awards December 28, 2020 – Posted in: Soccer
Cristiano Ronaldo added another accolade to his ever-growing collection as the Juventus superstar was named the ‘Player of the Century’ at the Globe Soccer Awards.
The five-time Ballon d’or winner vowed to continue playing for ‘more years’ after he was named the greatest football player from 2001 to 2020.
And the Portugal international insisted he has no plans to slow down in his speech at the event in Dubai.
He said: “It’s really beautiful. I just want to say thank you to everyone.
“Thanks to the people who voted for me, my team-mates, clubs and national team, family and friends – especially my girlfriend and my children who help me to be a better person.
“It is an exceptional achievement. It gives me the motivation to move forward.
“To be named the best is a great honour, I hope that this situation [the Coronavirus pandemic] is over next year and that we can have more fun, thank you very much.
“I hope to still be able to play for more years.”
Earlier this year, Ronaldo became only the second player ever to score a century of goals for his country, taking his tally to 102 for Portugal.
And in the first week of December, the Juventus ace scored his 750th career goal for club and country by netting against Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League.
