Latest report gathered from the world of sports indicates that Cristiano Ronaldo will be the very first footballer to receive the ‘Paolo Rossi Award’ in the wake of scoring 29 goals for Juventus in the Serie A last season.
1982 Ballon d’Or winner, Paolo Rossi, died in December 2020 at 64 years old in what was a miserable day for the football world and fans around the world.
Calciomercato affirmed that the Italian Footballers Association (IFA) have formally chosen to rename the top Serie A goal scorer award out of appreciation for the late legend. This implies that beginning this year the name of the award will formally be the “Paolo Rossi Award”, to respect his status as perhaps the best forwards of his time.
The principal beneficiary of the “Paolo Rossi Award” will go to Cristiano Ronaldo, as the sensational footballer finished the 2020/21 season as Serie A’s most highest goal scorer with 29 beautiful goals.
