SPANISH PAPER PREDICTS XAVI HERNANDEZ WINNER OF FIFA GOLDEN BALL AWARD 2010

Barcelona based Sports Daily “Mundo Deportivo” has elaborated their own survey on which players are the favourites for this year FIFA Golden Ball Award 2010. According to the paper they have interviewed 75 World Football personalities; active players, international Coaches & retired prestigious players, to give an orientation of how things will go before FIFA announces officially the 3 candidates next Monday.

Xavi, Messi & Iniesta : the 3 Fifa Golden Ball candidates
according to the survey.

The survey conclusion gives the following result: the three candidates would be Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta & Lionel Messi. The surprise is that Inter Milan & Dutch International Wesley Sneijder does not make the cut.


The Spanish Sports paper prediction is that this year’s winner will - as well - be FC Bareclona midfielder XAVI HERNANDEZ, with second place going to Andres Iniesta & third place to Lionel Messi., a clean sweep for Barça.


Remember, this news piece comes out of a Barcelona based newspaper, interviewing 75 World Football personalities of which there is a bulk that are retired & have no voting rights. Thus at this moment it is all pure speculation & we all must await the official FIFA announcement. Said this, the “Mundo Deportivo” research exercise does serve to orientate us & the betting houses have taken note making Xavi “hot” favourite.


Stay tuned, we will officially have the 3 candidates in four days.

That would be amazing. Somehow I think Sneijder will be in the running.
