Zidane Champions League MVP

MONACO (Reuters) - France's Zinedine Zidane, whose spectacular goal clinched Real Madrid's ninth European Cup as they beat Bayer Leverkusen in May, was named the most valuable player in the Champions League for last season's performances.

The award was announced at UEFA's annual gala dinner at which the European governing body's president Lennart Johansson also gave a special award to Sir Bobby Robson, the 69-year-old Newcastle United manager, for his lifetime contribution to the game.

Real Madrid swept four of the six awards with Roberto Carlos being named the best defender, Raul the best forward for the third successive year, Zidane the best player and Vicente del Bosque as the best coach.

The other awards went to Bayern Munich keeper Oliver Kahn, who won that category for the fourth successive season, and Michael Ballack, now Kahn's team mate but named best midfielder of the season for his performances with Bayer Leverkusen.

Sporting's Jardel won UEFA's Golden Shoe after his 42 goals helped the Portuguese side win their domestic title last season and landed him the Golden Boot award as Europe's top scorer.
