Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta have won the Premier League September Player and Manager of the Month awards.
The organiser of the English top-flight made the announcement on their verified Twitter handle on Friday.
Ronaldo finished ahead of Manchester City defender and Portuguese teammate Joao Cancelo, Antonio Rudiger of Chelsea, Allan Saint-Maximin of Newcastle, Ismaila Sarr of Watford and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
Ronaldo Scored three times in as many league appearances over the course of the month in which he returned to England, ensuring he would top the vote and win the accolade for the fifth time in his career.
He started his second spell at United in incredible style, scoring a brace against Newcastle United on his return to the Theatre of Dreams.
He then found the back of the net once again versus West Ham United in London as the Reds came away from the capital with three points, just over a week later.
Prior to picking up September’s accolade, the 36-year-old had won the award four times during his first spell at the club.
On his part, Arteta beat the likes of Pep Guardiola Jurgen Klopp, Graham Potter and Dean Smith to land the award.
After a tough start to the season, the Spaniard helped his side bounce back in style as they saw off Norwich, Burnley and then Tottenham in the north London derby.
The winners are decided by votes from supporters on the Premier League website combined with an assessment from a panel of football experts.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
