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


Francois Colin, De Standaard, Belgium

“Leicester is now only 90 minutes away from the biggest sensation in the history of the Premier League, while Luis Suarez scored eight goals in five days.”


Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“Regardless of how poor the opposition were, Barcelona’s effort to score 14 goals in two matches and concede none was a significant show of strength and a great way to bounce back from a string of bad results.”


Umaid Wasim, Dawn Newspaper, Pakistan

“Just when Barcelona’s La Liga title defense seemed to be stuttering, Luis Suarez stepped up - and in style. With the Uruguayan scoring eight times in two games, the Catalans have found their verve again and it seems Suarez wants to singlehandedly finish the job.”


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

“Can someone like Luis Suarez just score whenever he wants? Two four-goal games in one week is quite a feat. To have a season’s worth of goals for most players in the span of a few days is more than just amazing.”


Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Riyad Mahrez’s PFA award and his opener against Swansea proved how important he is to Leicester and their march toward the Premier League title.”


Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“Barcelona thrashed Sporting Gijon 6-0, Luis Suarez scored four goals and his team showed that it is the favorite for the Spanish league title.”


Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

“Juventus won its fifth Italian title in a row after an amazing comeback. They had 12 points after the first 10 games and nobody thought they would win it again. Gianluigi Buffon is proving eternal and still very charismatic, while coach Massimiliano Allegri kept his nerve during the hard times.”


Jonathan Johnson, BeIN Sports USA, France

“Crisis? What crisis? Barcelona spectacularly hit back at their critics by exiting their recent slump in form with an 8-0 mauling of Deportivo La Coruna and a 6-0 trouncing of Sporting Gijon.”
