Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo was named the Italian league’s player of the year at an awards ceremony in Milan on Monday night.

Ronaldo was at the Gran Gala del Calcio in Milan to collect his prize, instead of attending the Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris where he was third in the voting for best player in the world which Messi won.

According to reports, the Portugal international turned up about an hour before the main award was announced, arriving more than two hours after the other guests, and waited outside in the car until the moment came for him to go on stage to pick up the prize for his place in the team of the season.

“It’s an honor to hold this award,” Ronaldo said in Italian. “I thank my Juventus teammates.

“I’m very happy to play in Italy, it’s a very difficult league. Thanks to everyone for having voted for me. I want to do as well this year, too.”

Ronaldo also took to Instagram hours ago to thank everyone that voted for him, adding that switching to the Italian league from La liga has been difficult but he’s happy and wants to be better.

The Portugal international scored 26 goals in his debut season in Italy and helped Juventus towards another domestic title. In the league, he scored 21 times in 31 appearances, finishing fourth in the top-scoring charts, with veteran striker Fabio Quagliarella of Sampdoria collecting the golden boot award.

A jury comprising of fellow Serie A players, coaches, referees, journalists, and current and former technical commissioners all agreed that Ronaldo was the league’s best last season.

Juventus’ quest to win the league yet again isn’t going well however, with Inter Milan currently a point above them at the summit of the table.

Ronaldo has managed six goals in his 11 Serie A appearances this term and will be expected to help his side secure another league title.

Dr. Sledge Duodu Donates Food Packages To Touch The Lives Of 15,000 Community Members And Police During Coronavirus Lockdown

Dr. Sledge Duodu, founder and CEO of Goldridge Ghana Limited, is donating 5,000 ‘Touching Lives’ family food packages that will benefit more than 15,000 members of the community as the COVID-19 crisis impacts everyday lives. Each package includes rice, cooking oil, sardines and spaghetti, and hand sanitizer.

They are being donated to both police and army task forces in Accra who are making sure citizens stay at home and follow the measures put in place by the Government to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and to some of the poorest communities to help the capital’s most vulnerable.

“We all need food, whether we are one of those on the front line putting our own lives at risk to protect others, or amongst society’s less privileged who need a hand to make sure families are able to eat during this lockdown period,” comments Dr. Sledge Duodu. “We will give each security service employee a package to take to their family, and I will go to the homes of vulnerable people to deliver their Touching Lives package myself.”

A husband and father of four children, Dr. Sledge Duodu is from Kibi Asikame and is a seasoned entrepreneur who has the work of Ghanaian communities at his heart. Through Goldridge, a gold trading and export company, he is looking to reshape the Ghanaian small-scale gold mining sector by supporting miners to improve their working conditions and livelihoods through responsible social and environmental mining practices.
Dr. Sledge and his team at Goldridge will distribute the ‘Touching Lives’ packages throughout this week, reaching one area of Accra every day and one family at a time.
