Video: Cristiano Ronaldo has won the Player of the Month title for the second time in a row for Manchester United. Manchester United has announced that Cristiano Ronaldo has been voted as the club’s Player of the Month for the month of April.
Ronaldo, the Portuguese superstar who scored five goals in four appearances for the Reds in April, could say his final farewell to Old Trafford tonight, when the Reds host Brentford in our final home match of the campaign.
Nemanja Matic and David de Gea were among Ronaldo’s rivals for the award, according to ManUtd.com, but he won it with a whopping 74 percent of the vote.
Ronaldo scored a hat-trick against Norwich City to make it 3 out of his 5 goals for the season.
He also scored in the defeat to Arsenal and contributed to the team’s point-saving effort in the tie against Chelsea on Thursday night.
Ronaldo has now earned the United Player of the Month award for three consecutive months, a milestone only surpassed by David de Gea, who won the accolade in November, December, and January of this season.
On top of that, Ronaldo has already won the trophy four times this season, which is more than any other United player in the history of the competition.
Only twice this season has our Player of the Month award not gone to either Cristiano Ronaldo or David de Gea.
Will tonight’s match at Old Trafford be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final game as a Manchester United player?
After all, there is still some ambiguity around Erik ten Hag’s future plans for United, and they are almost certain to miss out on Champions League football this season. I believe there will be a lot of conjecture surrounding Ronaldo’s future in the summer.
While I would prefer that he stay until the conclusion of his contract, the choice should ultimately be up to the discretion of the management. To make significant changes at the club, he will need to get rid of a player of Ronaldo’s caliber who is in the midst of his debut season.
