Good Soccer Break Friday
It’s Easter weekend but there’s no rest for the world’s football players with another hectic schedule of matches.
There’s also news about the football rich list, David Beckham topping one magazine’s top earners while his former club Manchester United are apparently the richest club in the world. A Champions League trophy in 2011 would certainly help their cause.
In England, West Ham United’s Scott Parker was voted as the best player by the football writers, a change from Gareth Bale’s win as voted for by the players.
Who would you rate as the Premier League’s best player in 2010/11?
