Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho both won top prize at Portugese football award

Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho both won top prize at Portugese football award.
Real Madrid star man and Manchester United boss both scooped prizes at the Portuguese football awards in Lisbon.

Ronaldo, 33, stunned on the red carpet alongside Georgina Rodriguez as he picked up the Quinas de Ouro award for best Portuguese player.
Ronaldo, who has 37 goals in 35 matches this season, beat Manchester City star Bernardo Silva and Sporting CP keeper Rui Patricio to the gong.

The prize is only three years old – with Ronaldo, unsurprisingly, winning the award on every occasion.

Manchester United boss Mourinho – looking miserable as he was handed the prize – was given the Vasco de Gama award for “his work and his role as Portugal’s ambassador for excellence”.

Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim was given the award for best coach in men’s football.
There were also prizes for players and coaches in women’s football, futsal and beach soccer.

Ronaldo, who has won the Ballon d’Or a record five times along with Lionel Messi, the star man says 2017 was a great year, again, both personally and collectively, we had a difficult qualifying phase, we lost the first game, [but] we were able to get back .
He’s scored 17 goals in his last eight games, including four against Girona at the weekend.

After picking up the award, he said: “It’s a beautiful moment, first of all for our [international] team-mates.

“An unforgettable year at Real Madrid, a historic year with five trophies, full of emotions, with my fifth Ballon d’Or and second Fifa [The Best] trophy, thanks to my family and my four children.

“Thanks to the [Portuguese FA] for this gala, I think we deserved it.”
