Cristiano Ronaldo and Pep Guardiola were honoured at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai, the two were named player and coach of the century respectively.

It was a great time and achievement for the Juventus forward Ronaldo as he picked up the award in person at a ceremony held at the Armani Hotel on Sunday, beating longtime rival Lionel Messi to the prize.

The 35-year-old, who has won domestic league titles in Spain, England and Italy and Euro 2016 with Portugal, admitted his pride at receiving the accolade, given to the player judged the best between 2001 and 2020.

“It’s a pleasure to win titles,” said Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, at the event.

Ronaldo would also respond on Twitter , saying:

“Couldn’t be happier with tonight’s award! As I’m about to celebrate my 20th year as a professional footballer, Globe Soccer Player Of The Century is a recognition that I receive with so much joy and pride!”
