Cristiano Ronaldo

London, December 29: Cristiano Ronaldo joked he has a lot of space for trophies after winning the Best Player of the Year at the Globe Soccer Awards.

Real Madrid star Ronaldo retained the gong, winning for the fourth time overall following a stellar 2017.

The honour added to his record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or and FIFA's The Best Award this year after helping Madrid to LaLiga and Champions League glory.

"It is a special moment and I am very happy to receive this award," said Ronaldo, whose agent Jorge Mendes was named Best Agent of the Year.

"I would like to thank the coach, my team-mates and Real Madrid. Thanks to the people that voted for me and do the same next year."

Asked if he had enough room for his trophies, Ronaldo added: "Don't worry I have a lot of space."

Madrid swept the board at the Globe Soccer Awards, named the Best Club of the Year, while Zinedine Zidane claimed Best Coach.

"I want to say thank you, here I am representing the club and its president," said the Frenchman. "It's an honour for me and the club.

"Receiving this award means that things are working well.

"Thanks also to the president and to Real Madrid for giving me the opportunity [to coach the team]. All the players are incredible and I congratulate all of them.

"This is for them, not for me. Thanks also to all the coaches. I have won many things, but this job is very difficult.

"Lastly, and most importantly, I dedicate this to my mother."
