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


Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“The most important victory of the week was Bayern Munich prevailing 4-0 at Werder Bremen, thanks to top player Thomas Mueller. He achieved a nice goal and gave two assists.”

Francois Colin, De Standaard, Belgium

“Thiago Silva (voted player of the week) for excellent defending, minus one handball, but most of all for scoring the goal everyone who loves football was waiting for (for Paris Saint-Germain against Chelsea).”

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

“Cristiano Ronaldo may have deserved even more attention because, boy, did those goals he scored really matter. If not for him, well, this would be a bad time to be a Real Madrid fan.”

Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“Louis van Gaal is finally convinced that Wayne Rooney is his best striker, and needs creative means such as (Juan) Mata and (Ander) Herrera. Common sense finally at (Manchester) United.”

Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

″(Thomas) Mueller produced the goods in both the Champions League and the Bundesliga, scoring and setting up goals to take Bayern a step closer to success in both competitions.”

Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

“Shakhtar Donetsk saw red after just three minutes in their midweek Champions League game. After that, it all went black as they were knocked out by a relentless Bayern side which can make a 7-0 win appear routine.”

Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

“Kevin De Bruyne had an amazing week. He made things heated for Inter Milan last Thursday, and he also was the man to lead Wolfsfburg towards a 3-0 victory in the Bundesliga against Freiburg.”

Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Paris Saint-Germain’s performance at Stamford Bridge was one of the best team performances of the season. Getting a result after going down to 10 men could be a landmark evening for their club’s history.”

Soren-Mikael Hansen, Politiken, Denmark

“Eleven to nothing in two high level matches must make Bayern team of the week even though both PSG and Schalke performed great in Champions League away matches.”
