Here we go again, it’s the Puskas award
“It is important to preserve the memory of those footballing greats who have left their mark on our history. Ferenc Puskás was not only a player with immense talent who won many honours, but also a remarkable man. FIFA is therefore delighted to pay tribute to him by dedicating this award to his memory,” said Blatter at the inauguration of the award in Budapest.
The Puskas award – named after Hungary legend Ferenc Puskás – was created to decide the ‘most beautiful’ goal of the calendar year.
