UEFA Announce Club Footballer of the Year Nominees
UEFA announced a list of 20 nominees for the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year award.
17 of the 20 players on the list are from the English Premier League, with no players from Serie A represented.
The players nominated are:
Edwin van der Sar
UEFA will determine a best player at each position (attack, midfield, defense, goalkeeper) and an overall best player.
The winners will be announced next Thursday, August 28th, at the draw for the 2008-2009 Champions League group stage.
I gotta think that Cristiano Ronaldo is the favorite to win the Player of the Year. If not him then Rio Ferdinand. My prediction is that someone from Manchester United will win.
