Ronaldo: Why Last Season Was One Of The Best In My Career

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has explained why he thinks last season was one of the best in his playing career so far.

Man Utd Star Linked With Shock MLS Move

The former Manchester United attacker helped Los Blancos lift their 11th UEFA Champions League title last season, and also captained Portugal to victory in the 2016 European Championship, despite missing most of the final.

Ronaldo believes the two trophies he won made the campaign one of his best.

"(Last season) it was one of the best in my career, arguably the best if measured by trophies won," Ronaldo told UEFA's official media.

"We struggled early on but (Zinedine) Zidane's arrival was key to revitalise the squad."

The Los Blancos talisman also spoke about being a finalist for the UEFA Best Player in Europe award.

"It's a privilege for me to compete against (Gareth) Bale and (Antoine) Griezmann for award," Ronaldo added.

"I'm honoured to be the only player that has been among the three finalists every single year.

"Winning the award would be a big deal for me, although I prefer winning collective titles (with Madrid and Portugal)."
