Opinion: Ronaldo Does Not Deserve The EPL September Player Of The Month Award
Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, was recently honored as the English Premiere League player of the month of September, 2021. Coaches, players and well wishers have congratulated him for the award.
I dare to argue that he is not the best player in the month of September in the English top flight football. The award, notwithstanding, is not completely deserved. I have my reasons, and you may argue.
Let us look at other EPL players that have performed wonderfully well beyond Ronaldo in all considerations.
Let us look at the Egyptian and Liverpool talisman, Mohammed Salah. Salah has scored three goals also in the September. These are three goals in three matches. Since August, Mohammed Salah practically scores in almost all the matches for Liverpool.
beyond his prolific goal scoring ability, Salah has also rendered plethora of assiatnce to other players, such as Sadio Mane.
He has more recorded assists than Cristiano Ronaldo in the month of September, in the English top flight football. He also has more passes on accurate than Ronaldo.
You may also need to know that Mohammed Salah records more shots than Cristiano Ronaldo. Not just more shots, but more shots on target.
One may begin to wonder the considered the EA put in place before they declared Ronaldo the EPL player of the month of September 2021.
I mean, he is a great players. This is not the point for contention here. But in the month of September in the EPL, Ronaldo cannot be the best player.
Check out the players with the highest goal scores in the EPL in the month of September. Do not also fail to check out the players with the highest number of assists, shots and shots on target, passes on accuracy, etc.
What exactly is the football considerations for the award of player of the month award on Ronaldo?
Salah deserves it
