Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo looks furious after losing award to Lewandowski


Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly one of the most competitive men on the planet.

There have been stories to show as such, including the attacker buying table tennis equipment so he could practise after losing at the training ground during his Manchester United days.

It won’t be any surprise to the watching world that he clearly wanted to win The Best FIFA Men’s Player award for 2020.

Coming up against Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, there was stiff competition for the Portugal international.

In the end, it was Lewandowski who came away with the trophy and Ronaldo was evidently far from pleased about the result.

Disappointment that almost morphed into disgust was written across the 35-year-old’s face, as he likely saw the result as an injustice – though he had voted Lewandowski first and Messi second himself.

We’ve got a lot of time for how confused Messi looked for large parts of this clip, but it’s Ronaldo’s reaction to losing out on the accolade that has caught the eye of most people on the internet.
