Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the Italian League player of the year for the second successive time which is an incredible record for the Juventus superstar.
Since joining the Old Lady from Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo has been in super form for the Italian champions even though they are yet to win the Champions League.
During his first season with Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo won the award, but there was no celebration last season because of the disturbance of Coronavirus.
Last term, Cristiano Ronaldo was in amazing form for Juventus netting 31 goals in 33 games which helped the Old Lady to retain their League crown.
According to the report on Sportstar, Cristiano Ronaldo explained that he is happy to have won the award again and vowed to continue playing at the top of his game.
“I am happy and lucky. Persistence, confidence, work ethic, passion - those are all the secrets that allow me to keep playing.
''I feel motivated and you have to be every year, otherwise you won’t manage to win at 34, 35, 36 or 40 years old.”
Meanwhile, Juventus are currently occupying third position on the Serie A table with 55 points after 26 games played so far this term.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former Real Madrid and Barcelona superstar Luis Figo shunned Erling Haaland from his list of top six players in the world.
The Borussia Dortmund forward has been more than impressive for his German League side this campaign - scoring 31 goals in 30 appearances across competitions.
Haaland was instrumental to his side's progress to the quarterfinal of this season's Champions League following their 5-4 aggregate win over Spanish League club Sevilla.
In spite of this gigantic stat for the young attacker, Figo still thinks he doesn't merit a spot in his list of current best players.
Other names on the 48-year-old's list include Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Luka Modric, Mohamed Salah, and Neymar.
