Lukaku leaves Cristiano without the award for the best of Serie A

The Belgian Romelu Lukaku, Inter Milan striker, was chosen this Monday by the Serie A League as the best player of the 2020-2021 season, while the Argentine Cristian Romero, from Atalanta, was awarded as the best defender.

Lukaku, author of 24 goals and Italian champion with Inter, was awarded after analyzing the statistical data of Stats Perform and will be able to play next season with an MVP stamp on his shirt, according to the Serie A League in a statement.

Cristian Romero, third-placed with Atalanta, was awarded as the best defense after a season of the highest level, in which he stood out for his great abilities in one-on-one and for his ability in the passing game.

The best goalkeeper of the season was Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma; the best midfielder was Nicolò Barella, Italian champion with Inter, while Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, the season’s top scorer with 29 goals for Juventus, was chosen as the best forward.

Vlahovic, best U23

Serbian Dusan Vlahovic, a forward who scored 21 goals for Fiorentina at the age of 21, was chosen as the best U23 player.

“These six players, with their great performances, have contributed to the spectacle of an exciting season until the last day and that we were able to close despite the difficulties caused by this particular period,” said Luigi De Siervo, CEO of Serie A.
