Cristiano Ronaldo has said he was wrongly overlooked for the FIFA Goal of The Year Award, saying his over head kick for his former club, Real Madrid against Juventus last season was the “ most beautiful”
The Juventus superstar was shortlisted for the Puskas Award alongside Gareth Bale’s bicycle kick in the Champions league against Liverpool and Mohammed Salah’s curling effort against Everton.
Salah won the award to the consternation of all during the Best FIFA Awards ceremony in London
In an question and answer session via his Instagram account, he reacted to being snubbed by world football’s governing body.
“Salah deserved to win the Puskas Prize, he scored a nice goal.
“But let’s be honest, do not lie to us, my goal was the most beautiful,” the 33-year-old said.
