Juventus hitman Cristiano Ronaldo has been named as the Most Valuable Player in Serie A after his incredible debut season with Juventus.
The former Real Madrid forward scored 22 goals and came up with an impressive 11 assists in a pretty one sided Italian Serie A this season.
Serie A is usually known to hand out accolades to players who performed brilliantly throughout the season with Ronaldo being the MVP along with others who claimed various other awards.
Here's the list:
MVP - Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
Best goalkeeper - Samir Handanovic (Inter)
Best defender - Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli)
Best midfielder - Sergey Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio)
Best forward - Fabio Quagliarella (Sampdoria)
Best young player - Nicolo Zaniolo (Roma)
Fans on social media were particularly happy for Ronaldo as his start to life in Italian football was tough and he overcame major demands of one of the most physical leagues in the world and led Juventus to win the title, once again.
Here's how fans reacted to Ronaldo's award on Twitter:

My mistake .. "Cristiano Ronaldo has been named Serie A Player of the Year for the 2018-19 season. This is the first time that Lega Serie A award individual player awards have been announced with other positions set to also be awarded (goalkeeper, midfielder, young player etc)."— Lombardi.G (@Glombardi85) May 19, 2019

Cristiano Ronaldo named Serie A's MVP . Absolutely deserving I said this from the start of the season . Pep Guardiola is better than Mourinho and he absolutely deserves the appreciation he's getting now. Unreal season for him.— Sir XD (@Legendary_Bite) May 18, 2019
I get "Cristiano Ronaldo Wins MVP" makes for a better headline than Quagliarella, but this is a travesty even by Serie A's embarrassingly low standards— Gianni Verschueren (@ReverschPass) May 18, 2019
