Juventus Midfielder Felipe Melo Wins 2009 Golden Bin

Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has been voted the winner of the 2009 Bidone d’Oro (Golden Bin) award by fans of Radio Rai 2 show ‘Catersport’.

Melo has failed to live up to his billing at the Stadio Olimpico so far this season after Juve splashed out €25 million to sign him from Fiorentina last summer.

The 26-year-old Brazilian international won the award by the smallest of margins, relegating Inter winger Ricardo Quaresma into second place, the Portuguese ‘vying’ for back-to-back titles after being crowned the overwhelming winner last year.

Over 18,000 votes were cast and Melo’s Juventus team-mate Tiago Mendes made the top three, whilst Milan ace Ronaldinho came in seventh after making up for his disappointing maiden season at the San Siro with impressive displays in the early stages of this campaign.
