Antoine Griezmann deserved to be named UEFA’s Best Player in Europe, according to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo picked up the gong after leading his country to their first-ever European Championship title and winning the Champions League with Real Madrid.
The Portugal captain got the better of France star Griezmann in both finals before trumping the 25-year-old at the award ceremony in Monaco on Thursday, but believes his Atletico Madrid rival would have been a worthy winner.
“As I said on the stage, he [Griezmann] deserved to win this trophy,” Ronaldo told the media after collecting his prize. “He lost two finals so it was unlucky for him but I think he’s a fantastic player, he’s a good boy, he’s my neighbour – he lives next to me – and he deserved it.
“But he will win for sure one day – I hope so.”
