Sese & Cris each took home an honor at the Marca Awards tonight.
Cris nabbed the Pichichi for the 2014-2015 season. Here’s a video of all the goals.

“I want our fans to know that we are going to give our all to try to win as much silverware as possible”, he said at the ‘Marca’ awards, at which Sergio Ramos also picked up an accolade.
Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded with the 2014-2015 Pichichi Trophy at Marca’s awards ceremony held at Madrid’s Goya theatre in recognition of finishing top of the goalscoring charts in the last La Liga campaign. The forward, who netted 48 goals in 35 games, had words of thanks as he took to the stage to collect an accolade he has now won on three occasions: “I dedicate this to the team, the coach, the coaching staff and to Real Madrid as a whole because without them I wouldn’t score as many goals. This trophy is for the people who work with me on a daily basis”.
“I’d ask our fans to keep on getting behind us because their support is magnificent. Us players are going to go out and give our all to try to win titles and lift the Champions League”.
“Cristiano Ronaldo scored 48 goals in 35 appearances (an average of 1.37 goals per game).
“I’ve been in Spain for six years and for me, this is the best league in the world. It’s a brilliant and highly competitive league, with some great players. It’s a privilege to play here, and I want to stay on for a few more years, until my contract runs out, and then we’ll see about the future”.
Ramos: The national team’s best player
Sergio Ramos also claimed an award at the event. The Real Madrid captain scooped the Luis Aragonés Trophy as the Spanish national team’s best player last term: “It’s always exciting to win individual awards, and particularly this one, because of the name behind it”. Carlo Ancelotti was also amongst those to be recognised as he picked up the Miguel Muñoz Trophy for the best coach in La Liga last season.

Sergio Ramos also scooped an accolade at the Marca awards ceremony this lunchtime at Madrid’s Goya theatre. The Real Madrid captain picked up the Luis Aragonés Trophy for the Spanish national team’s best player last season: “It’s always exciting to win individual awards, and particularly this one because of the name behind it”.
“It’s a special year, and one in which as a national team we get to defend our title. This summer I’ll be playing in my third European Championships, and I’ve been lucky enough to win on the two previous occasions. We need to have the belief that we can once again lift the European Championships”.
In addition to Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, Carlo Ancelotti was also recognised at the ceremony. The Italian was awarded with the Miguel Muñoz Trophy as the best coach in La Liga last season.
Sergio, while looking pretty darn good, gets my vote for the “Why that suit coat? Why?” Award. Would it have killed him to have a nice gray matching jacket with the suit? Cristiano looks like he’s one fedora away from ordering a mob hit. Bless.
It was awesome to see Carlo accepting the Miguel Muñoz Trophy for the best coach in La Liga for the 2014-2015 season. ::sniffle::
Congrats to Sergio, Cris, Carlo and all the other recipients on their honors. The team returns to training tomorrow.
