Sir Alex Ferguson and Cristiano Ronaldo have won the manager and player of the month awards for March.

It is Ferguson's 21st manager of the month award, claiming his first in August 1993, while Ronaldo has now won the player award on four occasions.

The prizes crown an exceptional month for United, who won all their Premier League games without conceding a goal.

Ronaldo, last year's Barclays Player and Young Player of the Season, has scored 37 goals so far this season.

The Red Devils started March with a convincing 3-0 victory at Fulham, followed by a 1-0 win over Derby at Pride Park with Ronaldo scoring the only goal.

The Portuguese winger claimed both goals in the 2-0 win over Bolton and scored again in a 3-0 home win against Liverpool.

Ferguson's side rounded off March with a 4-0 victory over Aston Villa in which Ronaldo added to his Premier League tally of 27 goals this season.

The former Sporting Lisbon player - who also claimed January's prize - is now six goals ahead of Liverpool striker Fernando Torres in the race for the Barclays Golden Boot award.
