Cristiano Ronaldo: I never imagined I’d take a photo like this
Having picked up a fifth Ballon d’Or at the end of 2017, Cristiano Ronaldo added to his haul of individual trophies, one which he remains shocked by.
The Real Madrid star has now posed with his five Ballon d’Or prizes, his four Golden Shoes, his two The Best awards and his FIFA World Player and Best Champions League Player gongs.
“When I was playing in the streets of Madeira and dreaming of reaching the top of football, I couldn’t imagine taking a photo like this,” he said in an Instagram post, in which he shared the image.
“I dedicate this moment to, above all, my family, my friends, my teammates, the coaches I learned from and those who I worked with in clubs and with the national team.
“Finally, I say a special thank you to my fans.
“These trophies are yours too!”
The player’s awards and trophies are currently housed at his own personal museum in his hometown of Madeira.
