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


Aurelio Capaldi, RAI Sport, Italy

“Carlos Tevez is probably living the best time of his career and he’s just had an incredible week. He scored a fantastic double in Dortmund to allow Juventus go through the Champions League quarterfinals and a few days later the Argentinian was again the main man for Juve as they beat Genoa in Serie A and became closer to win their fourth consecutive ‘scudetto.’”


Julian Bennetts, Hayters news agency, England

“Three goals in two games for Carlos Tevez, who really is the key man for Juventus at present. They were goals of high quality, too, from a man who is in superb form.”


Manos Staramopoulos, Dimocratia, Greece

“Luis Suarez gave Barcelona the win in the classic Spanish derby against Real Madrid, taking the difference of points between these two teams to four with only ten more matches for this year’s league.”


Francois Colin, De Standaard, Belgium

“Lionel Messi was just divine in first half against Manchester City (for Barcelona in the Champions League), he plays football like an angel.”


Chris Tait, The Herald, Scotland

“It was left to Luis Suarez to take a large bite out of Real Madrid’s title ambitions. Typical.”


Tito Puccetti, ESPN, Argentina

“Luis Suarez scored his most valuable goal for Barcelona. It determined the ‘clasico.’”


Mike McGrath, The Sun, England

“It is quite incredible that Gerard Pique got the most valuable player award for ‘El Clasico,’ showing that defenders are as important as attackers, although Harry Kane is still the hottest striker around at the moment.”


Marco Monteverde, News Corp. Australia

“We can forgive Tevez for missing a penalty against Genoa. It was the only thing that went wrong for him in a week he inspired Juventus to wins in the Champions League and Serie A.”


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

“Considering how dominant Real Madrid looked for so long, Barcelona being in first in La Liga -- by four points! -- is a shocking development that I don’t think many of us could have seen coming.”


Soren-Mikael Hansen, Politiken, Denmark

“A parade of stars performed at top level in heavy competition for top spot in the AP Poll. ‘Hattrickers’ (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic and Kane might be the obvious ones but true excellence was shown by Joe Hart preventing Man City from being humiliated at Camp Nou in Champions League.”
