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


Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“Nothing is by chance! Wolfsburg played amazing football and managed to put an end to the invincibility of Bayern Munich.”


Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

“Arsenal remain a fraction outside the top four but their emphatic win over Aston Villa was a reminder of the London side’s pedigree.”


Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“Beating Bayern Munich does not happen every week, so Wolfsburg deserve the plaudits this week. Of the individual performances, it was another eye catching week for Harry Kane. He fully deserves his new contract at Tottenham following his displays this season.”


Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“Wolfsburg not only handed Bayern Munich their first Bundesliga defeat of the season, they thrashed Pep Guardiola’s team.”


Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

“I keep having some doubts about Luis Enrique’s ability to manage a top club and Barcelona’s dressing room’s problems are proof of his limits to deal with big players. But it’s a fact he has got eight wins in a row. Not so easy, even if you can count on Messi and Neymar.”


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

“To pull off a win like Wolfsburg’s over Bayern Munich, it takes a special performance, which is why Kevin De Bruyne was on top of my ballot. There were some hat tricks out there that normally would have fought for top honors, but Wolfsburg’s win was so stunning, and overwhelming, it called for special attention.”


Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“With a goal and a magical assist, (Mesut) Ozil regained his highest level of football to guide Arsenal to win 5-0 against Aston Villa.”


Julian Bennetts, Hayters news agency, England

“The 4-1 defeat was comprehensive and shocking for Pep Guardiola’s side, who were outplayed throughout. It was also a result the Bundesliga needed; no-one likes a procession.”


Sam Tighe, Bleacher Report, England

“Wolfsburg re-opened the Bundesliga season in electric fashion, inflicting Bayern Munich’s first defeat of the campaign and scoring as many goals against them in one night (four) as they’d conceded in the entire first half of the season.”
