Cristiano Ronaldo has bagged his first major individual award since he moved from real Madrid to Juventus after he emerged the Player of the year in Seria A.
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.
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.
The talisman however could not stop Ajax from eliminating his team from the semi-finals of the Champions League even though he scored 2 goals in both legs of that particular encounter against the Dutch team.
