Cristiano Ronaldo has been announced the winner of the Serie A Player of the Year and becomes the first player to pick up the equivalent award in England, Spain, and Italy throughout his glittering career and most commendable about the feat is the fact that he is winning it in just his first year in Italy.
According to Goal, Ronaldo will be recognized for the award before the game against Atalanta on Sunday.
Ronaldo scored 21 goals in 30 league matches, picking up eight assists for Juventus this season. The Portuguese also picked up six goals in the Champions League, and a goal in the Supercoppa Italiana.
He is also the first player to pick up the equivalent award in England, Spain, and Italy.
Ahead of the announcement, Ronaldo took to Twitter on Saturday to wish Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri, farewell.
Ronaldo wrote: ‘Thank you Mister! We lived a single year together but it was awesome because besides being a great coach you are a great man. It’s been a pleasure working with you!’
The head coach will be leaving the club before the start of next season in a decision Juventus president Andrea Agnelli said was ‘the toughest decision he has ever had to make.’
