Alejandro Molina Uribe Honoured for Scoring the QNet-ACL Goal of the Season 2010
You’ve been thinking about it and many of you have been voting for it. The QNet-ACL Goal of the Season has been selected! Do you remember that sensational free kick scored by Alejandro Molina Uribe in time-added-on in the 91st minute against Gamba Osaka (JPN) last 11 May 2010, and secured his FC Seoul team’s position in the Quarter Finals? This kick has officially become the best goal of the season!
This week Alejandro Molina got his well-deserved award. He was presented with the inaugural QNet-ACL Goal of the Season 2010 Award on Wednesday, 2 March. The ex-Seongnam Ilhwa FC Columbian midfielder, who now plays for FC Seoul, received his award at a presentation ceremony from QNet Director TG Kintanar prior to his team’s match against Al Ain SCC in the Tahnoun Bin Mohamed Stadium. Molina also received an exclusive Bernhard H. Mayer® La Rétrograde II watch, presented by Khaled Diab, General Manager of QNet Middle East.
Upon receiving his award, Molina said, “I am very proud and grateful to receive this award. I would like to thank QNet and AFC for their support.”
The QNet-ACL Goal of the Season 2010 was chosen from a shortlist of six goals, selected by the Football Asia team committee. Referring to Molina’s club ACL title last season, the committee described the performance as “a fine reflection of their triumphant march to glory in [last] year’s ACL, where Molina was an undoubted driving force.”
QNet Sponsorship Marketing Manager Christophe Altaie shared that QNet was proud to be associated with this award, as it was a good fit with the QNet’s sports sponsorships’ strategic concept: ‘Platform for Performance’. “In a football game, it’s all about performing to the highest level,” said Altaie. “And this award epitomises the achievement of the player who demonstrated his skills by scoring an amazing goal, the key to winning.”
He continued on to say, “We are thrilled at the support this competition has garnered, as fans stand to win amazing prizes each playing month by voting online at www.qnet.net/goalofthemonth for what they believe was the best goal. And for the 2011 season, we plan to make the competition more exciting by providing even more attractive prizes for the participants.”
Altaie concluded by adding that he believed this year’s competition will bring the very best Asian football has to offer, with excitement levels being brought to new heights, both on and off the pitch.
