As expected, Cristiano Ronaldo has received PFA's Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year award.
Congratulations, Cristiano Ronaldo! The Portuguese winger has been in scintillating form throughout the season and more than deserves to beat everyone, including team-mates Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney, for the awards.
However, it's a bit strange that, as you may know, the votes had been cast back in January. Ronaldo saved the voters: he could have let them down by delivering poor performances throughout February, March and April. He did the opposite of course, raised his game and more than justified his peers' decisions.
A mention must go to Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, too. They're playing as if the only real significance of age is that it gives you experience. They would have been worthy winners of this award, too, but I must admit that though I'm a rabid fan of both, Ronaldo deserved more than they would have done for everything he had to endure after the World Cup.
Sir Alex Ferguson received the PFA Special merit award and eight of our players made it into the team of the year.
Ronaldo knew what he had to say at such an occasion, of course.
"It is a special night. It is amazing and a big honour for me to win trophies like this in the English Premier League. I am very proud.
"My colleagues have voted for me and that is fantastic because the players know the qualities of players.
"I want to keep working hard and getting better because these trophies have now given me more motivation.
"This great team has helped me because when the team wins it is easier for us all to play with more confidence."
PFA Premier League Team of the Year 2007:
Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Patrice Evra (all Man Utd); Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Cristiano Ronaldo (all Man Utd) and Steven Gerrard (Liverpool); Didier Drogba (Chelsea) and Dimitar Berbatov (Tottenham)
