Cristiano Ronaldo Reveals His 2016 European Championship Player Of The Tournament
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his choice for the Player of the Tournament at the 2016 European Championship – and it's neither Antoine Griezmann nor himself.
In a recent interview ahead the UEFA Best Player in Europe award ceremony, the 31-year-old insisted his Portugal teammate Pepe, and not Griezmann, should have won the award.
The French winger was named Best Player in France after scoring six goals in seven games, while Pepe made the Team of the Tournament.
"In my book, Pepe was extraordinary this year. It was possibly his best season," Ronaldo said, as quoted by UEFA.com.
"He was undoubtedly Portugal's best player and one of Real Madrid's best players in the Champions League.
"I'm delighted he was selected in the Team of the Tournament at the Euros – in my opinion, Pepe was the best player at the Euros."
Portugal only conceded one goal in the knockout stages on their way to the Euro 2016 title, with Pepe being the standout player in their defence.
