Ronaldo Wins Premier League’s Player of the Month

Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has been crowned as Premier League’s Player of the Month for April 2022. 

The 37-year-old scored five goals in his four top-flight appearances for Manchester United last month. 

He started the month of April with a stunning hat-trick against Norwich City at Old Trafford. He also scored a consolation strike for Arsenal in a 3-1 defeat to the north Londoners. The goal made it 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 United’s final game of April. 

It’s the second time CR7 has won the Premier League accolade since he returned to English football in the summer. 

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.
