Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has claimed he was wrongly overlooked for the FIFA goal of the year award, insisting that his overhead kick for Real Madrid against Juventus last season was the “most beautiful”.

Ronaldo was shortlisted for the Puskas Award, alongside Gareth Bale’s own bicycle kick in the Champions League final against Liverpool and Mohamed Salah’s curling effort against Everton.

Salah won the prize to much surprise during The Best FIFA Awards ceremony in London, in which Ronaldo also missed out on the Men’s Best Player prize, which was given to Luka Modric.

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.
