The winners of each award receive a special badge to wear on their shirts but Ronaldo opted not to have his printed after receiving his title.
According to Spanish newspaper Marca, the 35-year-old did not want to feel above or stand out from his team-mates.
The other winners from the 2018-2019 season, Nicolo Zaniolo, Kalidou Koulibaly, Fabio Quagliarella and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, all chose to wear the badges on their shirts.
