Ronaldo, after receiving the award, expressed his delight and thanked his teammates for achieving yet another milestone in his illustrious career.

“I will try to speak Italian,” said Ronaldo. “I am proud to be considered the best striker in Italy. I thank my teammates, the players who voted for me. After two years in Italy, I can say it is a very difficult League. I thank everyone for voting for me and hope next year will be the same.”
