Cristiano Ronaldo won both the Euro’16 and the champions league in the summer. Ronaldo said the reason he will vote for Santos in the FIFA manager of the year is because he led them to their first European triumph.

Ronaldo told Marca: “Obviously my two coaches did an awesome job, both Zinedine Zidane and Fernando Santos.

“Now, in my opinion it is much more difficult to win a European Championship with Portugal, the first in our history. Zidane’s done a fantastic job but if I should favor one over this little bit, I would say Santos.

“That’s not based on our relationship, with both it’s fantastic, I imagine they’d do the same in my position.”
