Quotes from voters in this week's AP Global Football 10


LONDON — Quotes from voters in this week's Associated Press Global Football 10 vote:

Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

"Luis Suarez scored the most spectacular goal of the weekend in Europe, but what Bayern Munich did to Hamburg was incredible. Spectacularly high standards with the amazing orchestrator, Arjen Robben."

Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

"Lionel Messi's goals meant he went level on 23 La Liga hat-tricks with Cristiano Ronaldo, and so his duel with the Real Madrid star continues. This week it is the Barcelona superstar who is top of the charts."

Paolo Condo, Gazzetta dello Sport, Italy

"Bayern (Munich) and Barcelona, with their shining stars, announced the Champions League reprise: (Lionel) Messi will be top gun once again, in my opinion."

Marco Monteverde News Corp, Australia

"Scoring four of Wolfsburg's five goals was a remarkable contribution from Bas Dost in an equally as remarkable game of football."

Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

"Bradford City have left a few bruises in the FA Cup this season. Their latest victory, over Sunderland, was certainly one in the eye for anyone who thought the League One side peaked with that win over Chelsea."

Tom Timmermann, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, United States

"Bayern made a case for itself with an 8-0 win, which re-established it atop the Bundesliga, though you have to give Wolfsburg for the most interesting results of the year after its 5-4 win over Bayer Leverkusen."
