Cristiano Ronaldo named LaLiga Santander Player of the Month for May

The Real Madrid forward picks up the accolade, off the back of a string of world-class performances for his team and five decisive goals during the last month.

Real Madrid striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been named the LaLiga Santander Player of the Month for May in recognition of his outstanding performances for Los Blancos. His quality and goals proved decisive in the club's last few games of the season as he played a key role in Zinedine Zidane's team's title win.

Cristiano Ronaldo has had an impressive season, both as a player and as part of the title-winning team, and he proved again in May just how important he is to Real Madrid. The Portuguese forward notched up five goals in his last four matches, each of them crucial in Real Madrid's quest to lift the LaLiga Santander title. However, it is not just his eye for goal that makes him stand out. He also adds a lot to the team's overall game.

This accolade is awarded by Banco Santander, the competition's main sponsor, and voted for by the LaLiga.es writers.
