Los Blancos were the biggest winners in Thursday’s Marca Facebook Football Awards. The club took home more accolades than any other individual or team in the La Liga. They also won all but two of the honors given.
According to the newspaper, “Over 1.2m votes were cast from 191 different countries via the social network.”
Cristiano Ronaldo was arguably the star of the ceremony having won the best player and best striker awards.
Among the awards up for grabs at the ceremony, Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez scored La Liga’s best goal, thanks to his free kick against Real Betis in August which clipped in off the far post.
Keylor Navas picked up best goalkeeper award; Luka Modric was crowned the best midfielder and Marcelo got the best defender accolade.
Real Madrid fans club was considered the most supportive.
Other winners at the event who are non-Blancos are: Cedric Bakambu who was crowned the biggest revelation for scoring his 22 goals since joining Villarreal from Bursaspor last summer; and Diego Simeone who was named best Coach for leading Atletico Madrid to a second Champions League final in three seasons.
