Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been named Serie A player of the year (2020) for the second consecutive time.
Cristiano Ronaldo shares his secrets to success
The five-time Balon D’or winner said that persistence, confidence, work ethic and passion are the four secrets that allow him to keep playing football.
Ronaldo had won the prize in 2019 after his debut season at Juventus. The 2020 awards didn’t take place last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Portugal captain scored 31 goals in 33 league games last season and helped Juventus win a record-extending ninth successive Serie A title.
Speaking after receiving the award on Friday in Italy, Ronaldo said it was hard to play in empty stadiums at first, but they had one sole aim to win, and they did it.
Ronaldo was also named in the Serie A team of 2020, which was made up of: Gianluigi, Donnarumma, Robin Gosens, Stefan de Vrij, Lenardo Bonucci, Theo Hernández, Luis Alberto, Nicolo Barella, Papu Gómez, Paulo Dybala, Ciro Immobile and Ronaldo.
