Ronaldo: My goal was better than Salah's

Move over, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Salah would eventually claim the award to much surprise during a ceremony in London in which Ronaldo also missed out on the Men's Best Player prize, which was given to Luka Modric.

In a question-answer session the Portuguese player hosted on his official Instagram account, he said in response to questions sent to him about the Puskas award that he's fine with not winning and that he won the award before. In the latest "NESN Soccer Podcast", soccer experts Marc DiBenedetto and Marcus Kwesi O'Mard discuss the merits of Modric's triumph.

And - as was soon pointed out - Salah's strike wasn't even voted the Premier League goal of the month.
