The Argentine attacker picked up the gong after helping the Bianconeri pick up a ninth successive Scudetto in 2019-20
Paulo Dybala has beaten Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo to this season’s Serie A Player of the Year award.
Lega Serie A announced Dybala as the winner of the annual prize on Tuesday, with Ronaldo failing to retain the title he won in his first year at the Allianz Stadium.
Italian football’s main governing body named the Argentina international as the 2019-20 ‘MVP’, with Juve’s newest signing Dejan Kulusevski grabbing the Young player of the Year prize for an outstanding campaign at Parma.
Juventus also had another winner in Wojciech Szczesny, who got the nod for best goalkeeper, while Inter’s Stefan De Vrij, Atalanta star Alejandro Gomez and Lazio talisman Ciro Immobile were acknowledged in defensive, midfield and forward roles.
Dybala has recorded 11 goals in 33 Serie A outings for Juve this term, along with 11 assists, bouncing back strongly after a testing final year under Massimiliano Allegri.
Ronaldo might have thought he’d done enough to retain Serie A’s top individual accolade after contributing 31 goals to the Bianconeri’s cause, but his final tally was still five behind Lazio frontman Immobile, who earned the Capocannoniere.
Do You Think Dybala Deserves The Award More Than Ronaldo, Or Ronaldo Was Cheated?
