“It’s a lovely award and it’s the third time that I’ve won it since joining Real Madrid. Obviously, as I said, I feel very fortunate and am grateful to all the fans and Real Madrid. It was a great gift,” said Ronaldo.
“Finding the net is important because goals lead to wins so I try to score every week and I’m happy to do that because I like scoring goals.”
On coach Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo also said: “He’s changed lots of things. We’ve trained really hard for three or four weeks. He’s very charismatic and knows football and all of his players really well. I wish him luck and we’re going to give it our all to try to help him.”
