EPL award: Fernandes equals Ronaldo’s record at Man United

Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes won the Premier League player of the month for June.

He also won the award in May.

With this, Bruno has equalled Cristiano Ronaldo’s 14-year record of being the only United player to emerge POTM for two months in succession.

Bruno beat off competition from team-mate Anthony Martial, as well as Danny Ings (Southampton), Conor Coady, Raul Jimenez (both Wolves) and Allain Saint-Maximin (Newcastle United), to come out on top of the voting.

He also won the Premier League’s Goal of the Month, for his outstanding effort on the break at Brighton and Hove Albion.

“The Portugal international has been an instant hit at Old Trafford and has now earned the Premier League’s Player of the Month for June.

“The last Manchester United star to win the award for two months in succession was Bruno’s friend and compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, who took it home in November and December of 2006,” Manchester United said while announcing Fernandes’ award on its website on Friday.

Fernandes’s superb form has continued this month as he scored against Bournemouth and then again, from the spot, in the 3-0 win at Aston Villa on Thursday night, and also supplied the assist from a corner for Paul Pogba’s strike.

He won our Player of the Month prize for June and looks set to be a strong contender again in a few weeks’ time as he bids to win it for the fourth time in a row.
