Man Utd Star, Cristiano Ronaldo Wins Premier League Player Of The Month For April

Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Premier League Player of the Month for April.

Manchester United’s forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has been named the EA Sports Premier League Player of the month for April 2022 after scoring five goals for the ‘Red Devils’.

Cristiano Ronaldo Wins April Player Of The Month

The 37-year-old striker 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 the club 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.

Ronaldo also scored his 101 goals when he delivered a powerful performance at the Theatre of Dreams to secure a 1-1 draw against Chelsea in his final game of April.

The Portuguese won the club’s 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.

KanyiDaily recalls that last year, Cristiano Ronaldo made history after becoming the all-time top goalscorer in football history, following his goal for Juventus against Napoli.
