Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo Named Serie A 'MVP'
Cristiano Ronaldo has been named 2018/19 Serie A's Most Valuable Player (MVP).
The Portuguese superstar swapped Real Madrid for Juventus in the summer and he's enjoyed a stunning debut season in Italy's top flight.
Ronaldo to be given the new Serie A MVP award before Juventus' game against Atalanta. Handanovic best GK, Koulibaly best defender, Milinkovic Savic best midfielder, Quagliarella best attacker, Zaniolo best young player. I have an issue with more than one of those awardees

He guided his side to their eighth consecutive Scudetto title and he's bagged an impressive 21 league goals while setting up eight along the way.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has now won 'Player of the Year' awards in England, Spain and Italy.
He won the PFA Players' Player of the Year award in 2007 and 2008 during his spell at Manchester United, while securing La Liga's MVP title in 2013.
While Ronaldo has clinched Italy's MVP title, he hasn't been named Serie A's best forward.
