LONDON (AP) - Quotes from voters in this week’s Associated Press Global Football 10:


Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

“Lionel Messi created another historic moment at the weekend, arriving in the penalty area just in time to prod in the 400th goal of his Barcelona career. The Argentine then fell flat on his face while attempting to celebrate. Maybe he is human after all.”

Francois Colin, De Standaard, Belgium

“Another masterclass from Barcelona, this time in Paris Saint-Germain, and an important win in La Liga. David Luiz is still searching for Luis Suarez.”

Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

“The goal Eden Hazard scored against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge allowed Chelsea to make the most of Jose Mourinho’s winning strategy, which is driving the Blues very close to the domestic title.”

Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“The job’s not done yet, but Porto’s 3-1 Champions League first-leg win over European giants Bayern Munich was a fantastic effort. Then they backed it up domestically to keep the pressure on first-place Benfica.”

Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“After Chelsea’s great 1-0 victory over Manchester United, fans can smile that the title of the championship approaches their arms.”

Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Jose Mourinho deserves an award for masterminding the victory over Manchester United - but Eden Hazard and the rest of the team will have to take the plaudits in the poll instead.”

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

“Juventus had a good week; so often you see a team score a big Champions League win midweek and then they mess up when they get back to domestic competition. Not so for Juve.”

Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“In two games Napoli scored seven goals, and directed its desire on the Europa League semifinal in Europe and continues to stand a chance of second place in Italy.”
