Cristiano Ronaldo follows up historic hat-trick feat with another award

Cristiano Ronaldo has scooped the Saudi Pro League Player of the Month award for March following his latest heroics.

The 39-year-old recently fired in a hat-trick in Al Nassr’s 5-1 victory over Al Tai on Saturday, taking his tally to 33 goals in all competitions this campaign.

His first against Al Tai came in the 64th minute with a clinical strike into the bottom corner, before he scored with a half-volley and a header to seal his treble.

In the month of March, the ex-Manchester United forward found the back of the net four times from three outings.

His latest dazzling display saw him bang in three goals, meaning Ronaldo has now managed to fire in a hat-trick in each of the last 15 calendar years.

It takes his tally to 64 hat-tricks in his career, and he is on 882 goals and counting in all competitions.

Incredibly, 34 of his trebles have come since he turned 30.

That is 28 more than Lionel Messi has achieved, with Luis Suarez and Karim Benzema registering five and Benzema mustering just three.

Ronaldo has now won 802 matches in his career – more than any other footballer in history.

But despite picking up the Saudi gong for March’s best player, the league title may allude him with leaders Al Hilal 12 points ahead of Al Nassr.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner continues to showcase his talents while silencing his critics at the same time.

That is because Ronaldo was recently told he is no longer Portugal’s ‘best player’.

That is according to European football expert Andy Brassell, who claimed the forward may have to get used to becoming a squad player for the Euro 2016 winners.

He told talkSPORT: “I think Cristiano Ronaldo realises now that sometimes he’ll start, and sometimes he’ll be a squad player and that is just what he’s going to have to live with.

“It’s interesting because to even think about criticising Ronaldo two or three years ago would have been treated as complete heresy in Portugal.

“Whereas now, I think people understand that Bernardo Silva is their best player.”
