United's Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the ASPIRE Fans' Young Player of the Year in FIFpro's annual awards.

The Portuguese winger succeeds team-mate Wayne Rooney, who won last year's award. The United pair were also shortlisted for this year's Aspire FIFpro Young Player of the Year award, as voted by professional footballers across the globe.

The Reds pair, along with Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas and Bayern Munich striker Lukas Podolski, were beaten to the award by Barcelona starlet Lionel Messi.

The Catalan club dominated the awards, with Ronaldinho retaining his title of FIFpro Player of the Year and Samuel Eto'o received the FIFpro Merit Award for his work with African football and his active stance against racism.
