Cristiano Ronaldo reacts to record-breaking Player of the Month award

Cristiano Ronaldo keeps defying the odds at 37 years of age and his latest feat, becoming April’s player of the month in the Premier League, has broken yet another record.

Ronaldo won the prize for scoring five goals in April, fending off competition from Kevin de Bruyne, Thiago Alcantara, Son Heung-min and others. The former Real Madrid star has now won it for the sixth time – a new record for a Manchester United player.

He was previously level with Wayne Rooney, who had won it five times between 2004 and 2017. It was also the second time this season he won the award, having done it for the first time in his first month back at the club.

He has now delivered his own verdict on the prize, insisting that his hunger to win has never faded after collecting yet another accolade in his astonishing career.

“I’m as happy to win today as I was in my early days, the hunger for victory and achievements never fades away. Thanks to everyone that made this possible.”
