Ronaldo wins FIFPro for the year

Cristiano Ronaldo has been named as the FIFPro World Player of the Year while English and Spanish football dominated the Team of the Season with only Kaka coming from Serie A. The Portuguese forward was honoured for his incredible season that saw him lead Manchester United’s push towards the title and the Champions League trophy against Chelsea in Moscow .

Cristiano Ronaldo insisted on Monday night that he is fully committed to Manchester United, although he was less than definite about whether he will be there next season.

Ronaldo flirted with a move to Real Madrid during the summer after an incredible 42-goal season which ended with Champions League glory.

But Sir Alex Ferguson refused point blank to sell his most valuable player, and the Portuguese winger was denied his dream move to the Santiago Bernabeu.Ronaldo’s on-field body language in recent weeks has led to speculation that he is already looking ahead to the summer and a possible escape from Old Trafford.And while the 23-year-old claims that he is fully focused on the Red Devils, he stopped short of swearing that he will remain at the club for the 2009-10 season.”I insist I’m a Manchester United player and now I think that I will continue here next year,” Ronaldo said in The Sun.

Arsenal on fire


Arsenal is on fire beating Everton 3-1 in the barcleys premier league on 18 of october . With their key players in great form they are all set to take on West Ham on october 26.

Arsenal will have both captain William Gallas (thigh) and fellow centre-half Kolo Toure (shoulder) back in the squad for Sunday’s trip to West Ham.

Full-back Bacary Sagna (knee) also missed the Champions League win over Fenerbahce, and while he has an outside chance to return at Upton Park, the Frenchman may need another week’s recovery.

Abou Diaby is hoping to keep his place ahead of Robin van Persie after impressing in Turkey. Striker Eduardo is closing in on a return from his broken leg, but Czech winger Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) looks set to remain in recovery until the new year.
