A brilliant return at Manchester United has seen Cristiano Ronaldo win two awards in the space of a month.

The Premier League has announced Cristiano Ronaldo as the Player of the Month for September.

The Red Devils superstar scored three goals in three Premier League games in his first month back at Old Trafford, which included a superb debut brace against Newcastle.

Ronaldo beat fellow nominees Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea), Ismaila Sarr (Watford), Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle), and Joao Cancelo (Manchester City) for the big prize.

It’s the fifth time CR7 has won the Premier League Player of the Month award. Manchester City legend Sergio Aguero holds the record for the most awards after winning it seven times.

Ronaldo’s latest triumph came only days after he won Manchester United’s Player of the Month ahead of David de Gea, Jesse Lingard and Mason Greenwood.
