Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has been named Player of the Month for April – making it two monthly awards this season. The 37-year-old has won player of the month for a sixth time, now the most of any United player in the competition, overtaking Wayne Rooney’s
Ronaldo was in impressive form throughout the month of April, scoring five times in just four matches for the Red Devils, even though it was a tough time for Ralf Rangnick’s side who took just four points from five matches.
The latest award now moves the Portuguese international to within one of the Premier League record of seven, which is held by Tottenham striker Harry Kane, and former Manchester City star Sergio Aguero.
Despite a mixed time of it on the pitch for the Reds, the 37-year-old scored five goals in his four top-flight appearances for Manchester United last month, including a stunning hat-trick against Norwich City at Old Trafford which helped us to a dramatic 3-2 victory.
A consolation strike at Arsenal in a 3-1 defeat to the north Londoners followed and that was Ronaldo’s 100th Premier League goal – the Portuguese became only the fourth United player to reach a century in the division for the club, after Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney.
Goal no.101 soon followed, as Ronaldo powerfully volleyed home at the Theatre of Dreams to secure a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in our final game of April.RegisterAll 24 of Ronaldo’s goals this season VideoALL 24 OF RONALDO’S GOALS THIS SEASON
Cristiano ran away with our own Player of the Month prize, having netted all but one of our goals during April – Fred’s equaliser against Leicester, a game Ronaldo missed through illness, was the outlier.
It’s the second time CR7 has won the Premier League accolade since he returned to English football in the summer, as he also came out on top in September, following a headline-grabbing second debut in the 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle United.
Ronaldo has now won six Premier League Player of the Month awards in total, placing him level with Steven Gerrard and behind only Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane on the all-time list.
The Portuguese star was deemed the league’s best player in November and December 2006 and was also presented with the trophy for his displays in January and March of the 2007/08 campaign.
Well done, Cristiano!
