Ronaldo won the award on Friday, beating Salah and four other contenders to the September award.

His fine form for Man United since his return to Old Trafford in the summer has been rewarded, but Lineker feels the Premier League have made the wrong choice by not giving Salah the award after the Egyptian forward scored three goals in the month of September for Liverpool against Leeds, Crystal Palace and Brentford.

Reacting, Lineker wrote on Twitter, “He [Ronaldo] ‘s been terrific, but @MoSalah should’ve won this….comfortably.”

Ronaldo has so far scored three goals for Man United in the Premier League so far this season.

The Portugal captain scored two goals on his eagerly-awaited second debut against Newcastle at Old Trafford,

He then followed that up with a goal against West Ham United the week after.

But the former Juventus hitman failed to score against Aston Villa as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side slipped to a narrow defeat.
