Cristiano Ronaldo secures Saudi Pro League's Best Player for September
RIYADH — Cristiano Ronaldo, the star Portuguese forward and captain of Al-Nassr, was named the Best Player in the Saudi Pro League for the second consecutive month in September.
Meanwhile, Marcelo Grohe, the goalkeeper for Al-Ittihad, retained the Best Goalkeeper award, and Luis Castro, the coach of Al-Nassr, was honored as the Best Coach.
Ronaldo faced stiff competition from Moroccan player Morad Batna of Al-Fateh, as both players participated in four matches last month, each scoring five goals and providing three assists.
Marcelo Grohe, who guards the goalposts for Al-Ittihad, earned the Best Goalkeeper award after conceding only four goals in four matches throughout the month.
Portuguese coach Luis Castro claimed the Best Coach award following his team's flawless performance and achieving full points last month.
In the Best Young Player category, Muath Faqihi of Al-Taawoun emerged victorious after competing with his teammates Ahmed Bahussain and Satam Al Roqi from the same club.
Faqihi's remarkable contributions led to his recognition as the most promising player in the league.
