Former Real Madrid legend Cristiano Ronaldo makes yet another milestone in a United shirt after winning the Premier League player of the month for April.
The 37-year-old now becomes the first Manchester United player to win 6 times the players of the month trophy in the top flight after surpassing Wayne Rooney’s five.

Ronaldo may well be on the start of his declining age but his performance has been up to the mark this season.
The Portugal captain has already registered 18 goals in the Prem, just 4 behind the Mo Salah at 1st in a team where he hasn’t got enough service at the final third.
The five time Ballon d’Or winner had a blip in form at the start of the 2022 year but his never ending goal rush never showed fading as the forward kept his goal record in-tact.

Ronaldo entered the 800+ goal bracket this year and was rewarded with an prestigious award by FIFA federation for his remarkable achievement.
The Red Devil’s whole sayad has been dreadful, especially this season as a wholesome after ending up as the worst United side in the club’s history.
A period which all the Red Devil’s fans will be hoping to write off or wish to have never witness did create an unpleasant vibe behind the scenes.

However, Ronaldo never let the bad environment around his teammates and the club effect his performance.
In fact he showed great leadership and started to cheer up his squad players rather than pointing fingers towards them.
United’s no.7 future at the club next season looks promising but with the Mancunians failing to give the striker Champions League games, his chances of leaving the club would appear in the coming months.
Ronaldo has already been mentioned in fans player of the season alongside David de Gea and could win the Sir Mat Busby award at the end of the season.
Winning his second Premier League trophy this campaign proves that the greatest footballer has proves his distractors wrong over and over again.
