    Ronaldo named Fifa player of 2008

    Ronaldo beat Kaka, Torres, Messi and Xavi to the title
    Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the Fifa World Player of the Year for 2008.

    The Portugal and Manchester United winger becomes the first Premier League player to win the award.

    Ronaldo, 23, beat AC Milan's Kaka, Liverpool's Fernando Torres and Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Xavi to the prestigious title.

    "It's an overwhelming moment in my career and I'd like to dedicate this award to my family, friends and colleagues," said the United star.

    His 42 goals for Manchester United last season helped the Old Trafford club clinch the Premier League and Champions League double.

    Ronaldo, who also picked up the European Player of the Year crown in December and the FifPro World Footballer of the Year honour in October, paid special tribute to United boss Sir Alex Ferguson. 606: DEBATE
    Did Ronaldo deserve the title?

    "It's also true that the manager always has an important role to play. It was a great season for me and for my club and the coach was important for me because I learned a lot for him," he added.

    "His experience over so many years is of paramount importance - it's a privilege to have such a great club manager.

    "This is the climax of a fantastic era for me. I'm happy and proud about what has been done by my team and what we have won.

    "I am lucky to be part of the history of a club like Manchester United."

    The coaches and captains of 155 national teams took part in the voting for the award, with Messi finishing second ahead of Torres, Kaka and Xavi.

    Ronaldo is only the second Portuguese player to pick up the Fifa honour following Luis Figo's triumph in 2001.

    Meanwhile, Brazil forward Marta, who is joining Los Angeles Sol in the new women's professional league in the United States, collected her third successive women's award - equalling the record set by German Birgit Prinz.

    "This is an amazing achievement for me," said the 22-year-old, who has spent five years at Swedish club Umea and who was part of the Brazil team that finished as runners-up to the United States in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

    "This game has given me so many great moments of joy. This award is fantastic and I'd like to thank you all very much."

    England and Arsenal Ladies striker Kelly Smith was one of the five nominees for the title.

    i agree with you bro. to me Messi was and still is the best for the time being. Anyway he will win this year since Ronaldo is not doing well in terms of goal scoring.

    Hahahaha, Mkuu Ushirombo na johnj, Hata kama kweli dogo anajirusha sana ila 2008 ilikuwa yake jamani anastahili. Man Utd kuwa 3 na Chelsea 0 sio kosa la Ronaldo kutopewa Fifa World Player of the Year.

    Nashukuru mkuu, nimeona attachment na nimesoma, Thanks.
    Tanzania, kupitia kwa maximo, tulimchagua Messi. Hata mimi nilipenda awe Messi.

    Hongera Ronaldo.

    Wapenzi wa mpira,
    Haitakuwa sawa kutokumuweka dada yetu. Naona media zote hawataki kabisa kumuandika huyu dada yetu Marta kutoka Brazil, ingawa ukweli ni kwamba ameshinda kwa mara ya tatu mfululizo kama mchezaji bora wa mwaka (FIFA). Kwa wale hawajawahi kumuona dada Marta akiwa kazini, basi pitineni moja ya video kwenye youtube. Nyingine nyingi mwaweza ziona humo ndani.
    Nilikuwa sipendi mpira wa miguu wakicheza wanawake ila huyu sister kanifanya nianze kuuangalia. Pia kama mliangalia hilo onyesho la FIFA, nilifurahia kuona mpira uliotoka nje ukirushwa kiajabu. Dada alijibinua (somersault) kwa kuweka kwanza mpira chini, alivyokuja kusimama basi mpira ukawa ndiyo umerushwa. Duu, safi sana dada zetu. Sijui na Tanzania kuna timu ya mpira wa wanawake au sisi ni hiphop tu?

    Nadhani Man walimshikilia Ronaldo ili waweze kuweka rekodi ya uchezajo bora wa dunia.....baada ya hapa Ronaldo aweza kwenda atakako (hivi ni Real eh).
    BTW: FIFA hawaruhusu kumpigia kura mchezaji wa nchi yako? Angalia voting ya Ureno, Hispania, Ajentina n.k
