Right. This is an old article but who cares. We need something to keep this comm alive.Vermaelen wins "Best Player" award and reveals allergy to grass and Spain
By Walter BroeckxThomas Vermaelen has been voted Best Belgian football player outside Belgium.
Every year in Belgium we have the election of the golden boot. It is the election by reporters and trainers of the best player in the Belgian league.
I must admit I hardly take notice of this election as football in my country doesn't interest me much. I don't follow the speculation that goes on for weeks. The ceremony is broadcasted live on TV and as I was looking for some football on TV I just ran into the show and they just came at the point where they would tell the audience who has been voted best Belgian football player abroad.
So I stopped for a while and yes it was our Thomas Vermaelen that came out as the number 1.
Before they gave him the trophy they showed a film in which Thomas showed the TV crew around in London, in the Emirates, and had a talk with his parents and Dutch girlfriend.
It gave some nice moments which I like to share with you as it gives another picture of the person behind the footballer.( Verma doesn't like too much of sun.. So that's why he's so pale...Collapse )
Well, who would've thought that our Verminator is allergic to grass? :)
