Franck Ribery gets UEFA honour

Bayern Munich's Franck Ribery earned the 2012-13 UEFA Best Player in Europe award on Thursday, beating Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo for the award, presented following a live vote by journalists.

Ronaldo did not attend the UEFA gala and Ribery and Messi stood side by side as the winner was announced.

Ribery did not have a scoring record that matched up to Messi or Ronaldo, but his contribution was key as Bayern won an unprecendented Treble of the Champions League, Bundesliga and German cup.

Ronaldo was the highest scorer in the Champions League last season, with 12 goals while Messi scored 46 league goals for Barcelona across the campaign, helping the club win back the Primera Division title.
