And the best Juventus player in December 2018 was… Cristiano Ronaldo!
This makes it three consecutive EA Sports-powered Juventus MVP awards for the 33-year-old athlete who chose to end his nine-year spell at Real Madrid and move to Turin after feeling appreciated by Bianconeri fans who gave him a standing ovation for his overhead kick goal against them in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. CR7 is among the five attacking players called up by Massimiliano Allegri for Monday night’s clash against the Gialloblu in the Serie A and he will be presenting his prize to supporters right before the encounter at the Allianz Stadium.
In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo commenced December 2018 as he ended it: with the ball at the back of the net. His 79th minute kick from the penalty spot rounded up Juventus’ remarkable 3-0 defeat of Fiorentina on the first day of last month.
A couple of weeks later, his 70th minute penalty against Torino was enough to separate both sides. CR7 was again on target to snatch a late point for Juve away to Atalanta in what was their second league draw of the season.
Still influential for his current club, his brace secured a vital 2-1 win over Sampdoria on home soil in his team’s very last match in 2018. MVP award well deserved, it seems, for the ex-Galactico who has become an instant fans’ favorite in Turin! The prize, voted for by fans, will be given to him by a lucky Juventus Member.
