CR7 Aims Dig At FIFA For Salah Winning The Puskas Award?

Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah was controversially named the winner of FIFA’s Puskas Award, after it was rated better than Cristiano Ronaldo’s bicycle-kick against Juventus in last season’s UEFA Champions League. The Portuguese forward now appears to have responded.

Messi Ends Calendar Year Ahead Of CR7

On Thursday, the 33-year-old was in the United Arab Emirates to collect the Best Goal and Best Player Awards at the Globe Soccer Awards.

During his acceptance speech of the prize for the Best Goal, Ronaldo was believed to say that he might have won the Puskas Award if FIFA’s executives "knew more about football," according to LiveSoccerTv.

He also went on to say it was the best goal he has ever scored in his illustrious career.

"I see that those who understand this sport realize how hard it is to score a goal such as this one," he added.

"I have scored nearly 700 goals in my career, and that one is by far the best.

"The only downside is that I scored it against my current team."

Ronaldo Comments On His Portugal Future

Football fans were confused when Salah was named the winner of the Puskas Award in September, as many believed the Egyptian had scored better goals himself during the course of 2018.

Do you think Ronaldo deserved to win the Puskas award over Salah? Let us know in the comments section below.
