The Best FIFA Awards 2016 ceremony dominated the football sphere over the past two days with a the eyes of the world focussed on it. Portugese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo unsurprisingly won the the Player of the Year award, while Argentina's Lionel Messi and France's Antoine Griezmann finished second and third respectively.
The National managers and captains from each country are allowed to vote, with Ronaldo and Leicester's Claudio Ranieri claiming top honours at the award ceremony which was held in Zurich.
Indian National team skipper Sunil Chettri and coach Stephen Constantine too took part in the voting process, with Chettri picking his top three players and Constantine giving his pick for the top three, and their views couldn't be more different.
Delighted to win The Best FIFA award. Wouldn't be possible without my teammates, coaches and you who support me every day. Thanks everyone! pic.twitter.com/1E1VkaYbTu— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) January 9, 2017
Chettri went the way most people picked, choosing Ronaldo first, Messi second and Griezmann in third place which gave the superstars five, two and one points each. The 54-year-old Constantine's picks were completely different, with the coach going for Wales Gareth Bale as his top pick, with Robert Lewandowski coming in second and Luis Suarez getting his third vote.
Similarly, the duo differed while voting on the Manager of the Year, with Chettri picking Ranieri, Diego Simeone and Fernando Santos while India's manager opted to go for Simeone, Ranieri and Liverpool gaffer Jurgen Klopp.
Indian fans should not be worried, despite their wildly differing choices off the pitch, the duo look to be on the same page on the field which is what eventually matters.
