Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Manchester United hat-trick this weekend in a 6 goal second half thriller against managerless Newcastle.
He was of course very proud of his first hat-trick and surely his mum will be content after her comments earlier in the season.
He now has a total of 16 premiership goals this season, only 1 behind his last years total. Although he only has 2 assists this season so far, compared with a total of 16 last year. His overall record is 22 in all competitions so far this season, which is only 1 behind the total from last year!
â€œIt’s a special day for me. I’m very happy to win the game and go to the top of the league. This is the most important thing,” said Ronaldo. “It’s always important to score and help my team.
â€œI feel proud and very happy. It’s good to score a hat-trick but if I score two in every game I’ll be very happy. If we keep playing like we did in the second half I am sure we will be the best team.”
Other goals included a Tevez brace and a rare Ferdinand volley.
