Cristiano Ronaldo snubbed by his own manager in FIFA The Best voting

:Headline: Cristiano Ronaldo snubbed by his own manager in FIFA The Best voting:
Portugal boss Fernando Santos chooses N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Robert Lewandowski ahead of his international captain Cristiano Ronaldo as the best players of 2021.
Sports Mole

Portugal manager Fernando Santos decided against picking his international captain Cristiano Ronaldo in his selection of the top three players of 2021.

Ronaldo missed out on a place as one of the three finalists for The Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year award, which was ultimately won by Robert Lewandowski ahead of Lionel Messi and Mohamed Salah.

However, the Manchester United striker's cause was not helped by his own international boss as Santos snubbed his star man from his three selections.

The Portugal manager picked Chelsea duo N'Golo Kante and Jorginho as his top two players of the year, while Lewandowski was his third choice.

Ronaldo became the highest-scoring international player in history during 2021, an achievement which earned him a special FIFA award at Monday night's ceremony.

However, Santos chose not to recognise that feat in his voting, going against the pattern of players and coaches choosing candidates with whom they have worked or still work.

The 36-year-old was at least chosen by his Manchester United teammate Victor Lindelof as the best player of 2021, with the centre-back voting in his role as Sweden captain.

Ronaldo selected Lewandowski, Kante and Jorginho as his own top three, leaving Messi out of his voting. body check tags ::
