For winning his 5th Premier League Player of the Month Awards, Cristiano Ronaldo has another reason to celebrate his Manchester United return. In just his first month back, he was voted the best player for the same month. Despite this award being his fifth, there are three players who have won more than Ronaldo's 5.
Recall that Cristiano Ronaldo played 3 Premier League games and scored 3 Premier League goals in September. He is one of the highest goalscorers since his return. He also has one of the highest chances created as well as the most shots attempts since his return. All these suggest his 5th award is well deserved.
With three players winning more than him, the Portuguese captain will certainly set his sight on either matching them or even surpassing them as well. Whether he will be able to do this or not, let “Amazingboi” reveal to you the three players who won more Premier League Player of the Month awards than Cristiano Ronaldo.
Here are the three players.
3. Steven Gerrard.
Before Steven Gerrard was relegated from the top of the Premier League Player of the Month award list, he had won the award the most times by a player. The former Liverpool captain may never have won the Premier League title, but he won the monthly award on many occasions.
During his playing days, Gerrard won the award for March 2001, March 2003, December 2004, April 2006, March 2009, and March 2014. This means that Gerrard won the award 6 times before his retirement. As a result, he has only won 1 more than Ronaldo's 5. Watch out Steven Gerrard, Ronaldo is at your back.
2. Harry Kane.
It is head to find a better striker in the Premier League than Harry Kane. As much as Kane score goals, he also won this monthly award. Although it has been long he last won the award, Kane still has one of the highest numbers of Player of the Month award wins.
Harry Kane won the award for January 2015, February 2015, March 2016, February 2017, September 2017, and December 2017. If you counted properly, you will discover that he has won it 6 times as well. This means he is level with Stephen Gerrard.
1. Sergio Kun Aguero.
Sergio Aguero is the all-time winner of the Premier League Player of the Month Award. The former Manchester City striker was at the heart of Manchester City's rise to the top of the Premier League. During this time, he helped himself to the top of this chart.
When it comes to winning the Player of the Month Award, Aguero has done it better than everyone. Aguero won the award a record 7 times in his career in the Premier League. He won the award for October 2013, November 2014, January 2016, April 2016, January 2018, February 2019, and January 2020.
With Harry Kane winning six and Ronaldo winning five, Sergio Aguero's place at the top of this list could be threatened very soon. Either of these two players could dethrone him from his place at the top in the near future.
Despite Kane having 6 to Ronaldo's 5, I think it would be Ronaldo who would match him at least. The 5 time Ballon D'Or winner is known for shattering records, everywhere has been.
