Surprise, surprise, Ronaldo has been named the Portuguese Player of the Year for 2017 at the Quinas de Ouro (an award ceremony for Portugal’s finest in the beautiful game).

He beat out Bernardo Silva and Rui Patricio for the award, receiving a dominant 65% of the vote total.

This is also the third time in a row he has won this award, making him the only recipient since the Quinas de Ouro began.

This caps off a brilliant 2017 for the Portuguese forward, where he won La Liga, a second consecutive Champions League title, The European Super Cup, The Spanish Super Cup, the Club World Cup, France Football’s Ballon d’Or, and FIFA’s “Best” Award.

Ronaldo will now look to replicate some of this success in 2018, which may be possible given that his form has been resurrected, Real Madrid are still in the Champions League, and the World Cup beckons in the summer.
