Paulo Dybala has been named Serie A’s Player of the Year ahead of superstar Juventus team-mate, Cristiano Ronaldo.
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.
Juve’s newest signing Dejan Kulusevski also grabbed the Young player of the Year prize for an outstanding campaign at Parma while the club’s shot stopper, Wojciech Szczesny, was crowned best goalkeeper
Inter’s Stefan De Vrij, Atalanta star Alejandro Gomez and Lazio talisman Ciro Immobile were acknowledged in defensive, midfield and forward roles respectively
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.
The 26-year-old struggled to adapt to a new role in the team following Ronaldo’s arrival at the Allianz Stadium from Real Madrid in 2018, but has rediscovered his best form since Maurizio Sarri’s appointment last summer.
