Murray tipped Ronaldo to win the FIFA Men’s Best Player of the Year award, saying “It has to be Cristiano Ronaldo at number one. He won La Liga and the Champions League, and scored a crazy amount of goals in both competitions to help his team get there. I think he scored ten goals from the quarter-finals onwards in the Champions League, which is unbelievable.”
He also named his World XI :
Gianluigi Buffon; Dani Alves, Sergio Ramos, Giorgio Chiellini, Marcelo; Ngolo Kante, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric; Paulo Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi
“I have no idea [what to do in football] – I just find the sport really interesting,” he told FIFA.com, ahead of The Best awards.
“I love reading, watching and talking about football, so, if I wanted to do something that wasn’t tennis that I thought I was passionate enough about, I’d maybe look at doing something in football.
“I’m a huge fantasy football fan, so I’d probably quite fancy myself as a manager – but it’s completely different doing it in real life, definitely not as easy as everyone thinks.”
