Cristiano Ronaldo has been named Manchester United Player of the Year for a record-breaking fourth time after a productive first season back at the club.
The Portuguese national team player returned to Old Trafford in September and made an immediate impression with two goals in his second debut against Newcastle United.
He went on to score 18 goals in the Premier League this season, and only Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min – who both played five more games – could be better.
Ronaldo scored 24 goals in 38 games for United in all competitions, including age-defying hat-tricks against Tottenham and Norwich City in the league.
After winning five Player of the Month awards at United last season, the 37-year-old was named Club of the Year Player of the Year on Saturday, which equates to David de Gea’s four wins.
The award will be voted on by supporters, whereas the award for Player of the Year – won by De Gea earlier this week – will be decided by United players.
Ronaldo was previously named United Player of the Year in 2003-04, 2006-07 and 2007-08, before spending nine years with Real Madrid and three seasons at Juventus.
