Cristiano Ronaldo’s spectacular Volley in the group stage of the Champions League against Manchester United has been named goal of the season.
A list of the top 10 goals was compiled by a group of ‘technical observers’ days after Liverpool lifted the trophy in Madrid.
The group of technical observers featured the likes of former Manchester United manager David Moyes, current England Boss Gareth Southgate, Belgium Boss Roberto Martinez and Real Madrid legend Raul Gonzalez.
They concluded that Ronaldo’s superb volley was better than Lionel Messi’s free-kick against Liverpool and Sadio Mane’s chipped effort against Bayern Munich.
Ronaldo has won the award for a second year in a row after his bicycle kick against Juventus for Real Madrid got the nod for the best goal of the tournament last season.
