Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been named Player of the Month for April.

This makes it the second award and ofcourse the second since he retired to old Trafford.

The Portuguese has won player of the month for a sixth time, overtaking Wayne Rooney’s five and now the top of all Manchester United players.

Ronaldo was on form in the month of April, scoring five times in just four matches for the Red Devils.

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.

In the month of April, Ronaldo scored his 100th Premier League goal, in a 3-1 defeat at Arsenal, while he also registered his 50th club hat-trick in a 3-2 win over Norwich City

Ronaldo notched his fifth goal of the month, equalising to earn a 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

The forward topped an eight-man shortlist that also featured Nathan Collins, Kevin De Bruyne, Bruno Guimaraes, Gabriel Jesus, Son Heung-min, Thiago and Leandro Trossard.

The honour is, however, even more impressive as he missed United’s heavy 4-0 defeat to Liverpool due to being on special leave.
