Ronaldo set to do the treble over Rooney

14 April 2008
Cristiano Ronaldo - already tipped to be Footballer of the Year and PFA Player of the Year - is on the verge of an impressive club double, too. Ronaldo is currently way ahead in the voting for Manchester United's Sir Matt Busby Player of the Season trophy with81 per cent of more than 60,000 votes! Wayne Rooney is second on six per cent. The Portuguese star is also on course for the Goal of the Season gong for his spectacular free-kick against Portsmouth at Old Trafford.

He has 42 per cent of the vote so far and also holds second place for his effort against Aston Villa, with 22 per cent. The polls close on April 30.

Ronaldo, who scored a penalty in Sunday's crucial Premiership victory over Arsenal, has now scored an incredible 40 goals in all competitions for club and country this season - including 11 in his last 11 matches for United.
