Wayne Rooney favourite for Ferenc Puskas award for top goal
WAYNE ROONEY is the favourite to win this year’s Puskas Award, according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies make his stunning bicycle kick the 3/1 favourite for the FIFA goal of the year award from Neymar (4/1) and Stankovic (5/1). Despite his exploits this season Lionel Messi’s best effort is an 6/1 chance and Heather O’Reilly of the USA is a notable entry at 12/1 for her long range strike in the Women’s World Cup. Giovanni Dos Santos is the 20/1 outsider.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “We’re not taking any chances here and expect Rooney fans the world over to vote. The shortlist oozes quality and we’re sure to see money for Messi as well among others.”
