Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s awards ceremony was delayed. But the prizes were given out to the winners, with Scudetto champions scooping most of the awards.

Without a doubt, there was always going to be one real candidate to win the player of the year award voted for by panel of players, coaches, referees and journalist.

And that is Cristiano Ronaldo, who bagged 37 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions; 31 goals in the Serie A last season to help Juventus win their ninth Scudetto title.

The five times Ballon D’or winner had this to say after he was named the player of the year.

‘Thank you very much for this recognition to the Italian Footballers’ Association, Juventus, my teammates and our fans.

‘Today my thanks go to these less visible but nonetheless important faces for our successes. They are true heroes.
