Paulo Dybala beats Juventus team-mate, Cristiano Ronaldo to Serie A Player of the Year
Argentina striker, Paulo Dybala has beaten his teammate at Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo to the Serie A player of the year award for the 2019/2020 season.
The controversial decision made by Lega Serie A on Tuesday, August 4, comes after both men helped Juventus to a record 9th consecutive Serie A Title last week.
Dybala has recorded 11 goals in 33 Serie A outings for Juve this term while Ronaldo contributed to 33 goals this season.
With Dybala’s win, it means Ronaldo has failed to retain the title he won in his first year at the Allianz Stadium.
Serie A named Dybala as the 2019-20 ‘MVP’, with Parma player Dejan Kulusevski grabbing the Young Player of the Year prize, Juventus’ Wojciech Szczesny getting best goalkeeper, while Inter’s Stefan De Vrij, Atalanta star Papu Gomez and Lazio talisman Ciro Immobile won the best defender, midfielder and striker awards.
