Ron­aldo, San­tos hon­ored

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Thieves robbed the Buenos Aires home of Ar­gen­tine striker Car­los Tevez while the Boca Ju­niors star was in Uruguay cel­e­brat­ing his wed­ding, po­lice sources said on Tues­day.

The value of the stolen items has not been dis­closed, as the for­mer Manch­ester City and Manch­ester United for­ward had not filed an of­fi­cial com­plaint.

Tevez mar­ried the mother of his three chil­dren, Vanesa Man­silla, last Thurs­day in front of more than 200 guests at a cer­e­mony on the banks of the Rio de la Plata.

He dis­cov­ered the bur­glary on Sun­day when he re­turned to his house in the af­flu­ent San Isidro neigh­bor­hood on the out­skirts of the Ar­gen­tine cap­i­tal.

Real Madrid star Cris­tiano Ron­aldo and Por­tu­gal’s Euro 2016-win­ning coach Fer­nando San­tos scooped the top prizes at the sev­enth edi­tion of the Globe Soc­cer Awards in Dubai on Tues­day.

Ron­aldo claimed the best player award af­ter help­ing his coun­try land its first ma­jor ti­tle at this year’s Euro­pean cham­pi­onship and fir­ing Real to a record 11th Euro­pean Cup tri­umph.

“Prob­a­bly (this) was my best year so far,” Ron­aldo, who ear­lier this month won his fourth Bal­lon d’Or, said in a video mes­sage.

“Peo­ple still have doubts about me, about Real Madrid, about the na­tional team ... and you have the proof. We win ev­ery­thing, so amaz­ing year, I’m so happy.”

San­tos, 62, was named best man­ager af­ter mas­ter­mind­ing Por­tu­gal’s suc­cess in France, while Cham­pi­ons League win­ner Madrid took home the prize for club of the year.
