The Portuguese wrote on Instagram, “Salah deserved to win the Puskas award, it was a good goal. But let’s be honest, let’s not lie to ourselves, my goal was the best.”

The 33-year-old also congratulated former Real Madrid teammate Luka Modric for winning the FIFA best player award.

Ronaldo lost out on both the Puskas award and FIFA The Best Player award to Liverpool’s Salah and Modric respectively.

Salah won the award for his curling strike against Everton in the Premier League in December.

Ronaldo continued, “I’m not disappointed, life is like that, sometimes you win and others lose, what interests me is that in 15 years of career I managed to maintain the same levels of performance.
