Cristiano Ronaldo achieved his first individual award for Al Nassr as he was named the Saudi Pro League’s Player of the Month for February. His eight goals and 2 assists earned him the well earned award in his first month of playing there.
Ronaldo has shown no signs of stopping even after doubts about whether he could still perform highly or not. In only four league games, He has 10 goal involvements showing he is still not done yet.
Ronaldo had to leave Manchester United following disagreements about playing time and club visions. After no interest from any big European clubs, he then joined Al Nassr who made him the highest paid player in the world.
Despite struggling at first losing the Saudi Super Cup semi finals to Al Ittihad, Ronaldo soon turned it up. He scored his first goal which was a 93rd minute penalty to earn a 2-2 draw against Al Fateh.
Ronaldo then scored a sensational poker in a 4-0 away win at Al Wehda showing he means business. He then assisted beautifully twice in a 2-1 victory against Al Taawoun. He then ended the month with a hat trick in a 3-0 win against Damac.
All of this earned Ronaldo the Player of the Month award in his very first month there.
However, Ronaldo will not be satisfied with only one award. He is now actively chasing the league’s Golden Boot award.
Despite playing only five league games out of eighteen as he joined in the winter, Ronaldo is only five goals off the current top scorer of the league.
