The Portuguese star took to Twitter to share the news and thanked his team for being an integral part of the process. He wrote:
“Thanks to all my teammates at Manchester United, I couldn’t have done it without them. Let’s keep working hard and the results will come.”
Cristiano Ronaldo made a shocking return to Manchester United on deadline day and scored a brace in his first start against Newcastle United. He followed it up with goals against Young Boys, West Ham and Villarreal.
The former Juventus forward scored five goals in six appearances in September, with three of them coming in the Premier League. That was enough to ensure he was named as the Player of the Month in the English top-flight.
Ronaldo has now won the award five times. The previous four came during his first stint with the club. The 36-year-old is now tied with Wayne Rooney for the most Premier League Player of the Month awards won by a Manchester United player.
Can Cristiano Ronaldo help Manchester United bag the Premier League title this season?
The Red Devils haven’t had the most extravagant start to the current season. However, they have looked incredibly dangerous with Ronaldo in the side.
United’s other impressive signing, Jadon Sancho, has had a sluggish start to the season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer though believes the Englishman will turn things around in no time.

Cristiano Ronaldo has also named his former teammate Federico Chiesa as a potential target for United in the upcoming transfer window. The Italian international has been on fire ever since he made a move to Juventus on loan.
On the flip side, Paul Pogba has been associated with a move to the Bianconeri for as long as fans can remember. The French midfielder has had a rather bittersweet season so far and stated that he will ‘decide his future in the summer’.

Despite a couple of underwhelming performances in the Premier League, Manchester United have looked more organized than in their previous campaigns. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be relying on Cristiano Ronaldo to help the Red Devils bag silverware this season.
