Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho believes Cristiano Ronaldo was unhappy to be overlooked by UEFA for their Player of the Season award.

Mourinho feels his fellow Portuguese deserved the 2011/12 award more than Spain international Andres Iniesta, and understands Ronaldo’s dissatisfaction with the outcome of the vote earlier this year.

“I don’t know the exact reason behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s unhappiness. All I can say is that he is a great player who has had an absolutely fantastic season,” Mourinho told CNN.

“Iniesta is a superb player, too. There’s no doubt about that. However, he did not have such a great season to be honest.

“He was great at Euro 2012. He won the Euros, but we should not forget that it’s a competition that lasts only three weeks.

“So I do think that Cristiano had a good reason to be upset with UEFA’s decision.”

The 27-year-old attacker has been in superb form in recent weeks, netting hat-tricks against Deportivo La Coruna and Ajax.
