Cristiano Ronaldo awarded Serie A Player of the Year award

Vastavam web: Juventus star striker Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded the ‘Serie A Player of the Year’ award on Saturday (local time). This is a remarkable feat for the Portuguese international as he has won the award in his very first season in Italy.

The timing of the award is seen as unusual as Serie A individual awards have been given out at the same time, after the conclusion of the season, but Ronaldo will be recognised before Juventus’ match against Atalanta today, Goal.com reported. With this win, Ronaldo has now won the domestic player of the year award in England, Spain, and Italy. Ronaldo has been awarded five Ballons d’Or, which sees him tied with Lionel Messi for the most in history. Ronaldo has also won the league championships in these countries.
