The award is an official distinction from the league, with Ernst & Young putting the list together using data from Opta Sports and Netco Sports.

Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Inter Milan’s Samir Handanovic, Sampdoria’s Fabio Quagliarella and AS Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo were the other winners, the latter being voted Best Young Player and the others picking up the positional awards.

Ronaldo lost out on the award for best forward to Quagliarella, who has scored 26 goals and is likely to finish as this year’s top scorer.

Handanovic has been a key man for Inter, playing a vital role in the team’s push for a UEFA Champions League ticket. With two matches left to play, the Nerazzurri are in third place in the standings, four points ahead of AC Milan and AS Roma and one ahead of Atalanta.
