Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo has won September’s Premier League Player of the Month award.
The Portuguese scored 3 league goals in his first month back at Old Trafford with the goals coming against Newcastle (2) and West Ham.
Aside from the Premier League, Cristiano has also scored in both of Man United’s Champions League games against Villarreal and Young Boys.
The award is Ronaldo’s fifth in his career and his first since returning to the club last summer.
The nominees that the 36 year-old beat to win the prize include Liverpool’s Mo Salah, Watford’s Ismailia Sarr, Newcastle’s Allan Saint Maximin, Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger and Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo.
His four previous PL POTM awards came in November 2006, December 2006, January 2008 and March 2008.
The Portugal international joins fellow Man United greats Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie on 5 POTM wins and surpasses current teammate Bruno Fernandes who is on 4.
Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero holds the record for the most PL POTM awards having won 7 over his 10 years in the league.
Congratulations to Cristiano and I’m sure there are many more to come.
