Ronaldo voted player of the year by fans… but not by his teammates

For his comeback to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo was crowned best player of the season by Red Devils supporters, MU announced on Saturday. But if CR7 remains the idol of the fans, his partners elected their goalkeeper David De Gea a day earlier.

And four for Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite a very disappointing season for Manchester United, only 6th in the Premier League, the Portuguese striker, returning to the club 12 years after his departure, won for the 4th time the title of best player of the season after the vote of the fans. announces MU on its site this Saturday. CR7 had already received this trophy in 2004, 2007 and 2008.

If the Mancunians have not been brilliant this season, Ronaldo has still scored 24 goals in all competitions. More than respectable stats for the 37-year-old five-time Golden Ball winner. During this vote, David De Gea appears in 2nd place ahead of midfielder Fred.

The dressing room prefers De Gea

Failing to have been acclaimed by his supporters, the Spanish goalkeeper received the title of “player of the year” awarded Friday by his partners. Elected seven times “man of the match” (like Ronaldo) and three times “player of the month”, the 31-year-old goalkeeper was efficient, consistent and did not miss any of the 38 games of the season in the Premier League.

On the locker room vote list, De Gea succeeds Luke Shaw, elected in 2021 and Anthony Martial, rewarded by his teammates in 2020. Ronaldo, on the other hand, has only been honored twice by his Manchester United teammates: in 2007 and 2008.
