Cannavaro has done the double by ousting Brazil’s Ronaldinho as FIFA World Player of the Year.
‘It’s an unbelievable moment,’ said the 33-year-old Real Madrid defender at the awards ceremony inside Zurich’s opera house. ‘It really has been a golden year.’
Cannavaro ended Ronaldinho’s two-year reign as World Player of the Year after he also succeeded the Barcelona playmaker as European Footballer of the Year.
It’s good to see a defender being acknowledged for his commitment on the pitch but it’s bound to make a certain Arsene Wenger pissed off yet again…;)
