Cristiano Ronaldo claims he enjoyed one of his best seasons after severing ties with Real Madrid and moving to Juventus.
The Portuguese was awarded the Marca Leyenda lifetime achievement award for his successful football career and his sporting excellence on Monday.
Ronaldo joined the likes of Michael Jordan, Pele, Usain Bolt, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Lionel Messi among others.
The Portuguese is one of the most prolific strikers in the world of football, and he remains the Champions League top-scorer with 127 goals, Real’s all-time top-scorer with 451 goals, and Portugal top-scorer with 88 goals.
He has won five Champions Leagues, four FIFA Club World Cups, three European Super Cups, three Premier Leagues, two La Liga titles, one Serie A title and, with Portugal won Euro 2016 and the inaugural Nations League title.
“To leave Real Madrid in the way it happened after nine years, and then to arrive to Italy to play in a different league and with new team-mates, and with 33 years-old… I think in my opinion it was one of my best seasons as individual and as a collective,” he said.
“I won two trophies, the Italian Cup and the Serie A title, and also I won the Nations League title with Portugal. As you know, it is very difficult to win three titles so for me it was another great year.”
