Adryan wins Fallon D'Floor award

Published 1 Comments

When you see an award shortlist which features the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Arjen Robben, you wouldn't expect to look down and also see a Leeds United player in the reckoning - and you certainly wouldn't expect him to win it.

However, as reported by the Mirror, that is exactly what has happened to Brazilian youngster Adryan, who, has won an award for his amazing performance in a Championship match earlier this season...


Now you can stop the shocked expressions, the tricky winger will not actually be celebrating his win - it's not a trophy that you would not be putting on your mantelpiece or showing proudly to your friends and family.

That's right, Adryan has actually won the Fallon D'Floor - I can assure you that he won't be beating the likes of Ronaldo, Bale and Robben in this, or any other year's Ballon d'Or awards; something that would be genuinely amazing to win.

A football fan on social media came up with the genius Fallon D'Floor awards to celebrate or, more likely, mock the best/worst pieces of football play-acting and diving this year. Now you see why Adryan will not be overjoyed with this!

The 20-year-old became an internet sensation for all the wrong reasons back in November for an incredible reaction to be slightly clipped by a Derby County player in their league encounter at Elland Road. 

After a late, but fairly inoffensive tackle from Johny Russell, Adryan started flipping around on the floor like he had been shot. The Fallon D'Floor awards christened it: 'A Fish Out Of Water'.

The Leeds United star picked up 33% of the vote to finish ahead of third-placed Ronaldo, the current Ballon d'Or holder, despite the Real Madrid superstar's embarrassing tumble in the penalty box against Celta Vigo after a clash with the air around him. 


Another cringe-worthy incident in the MLS was the runner-up, see the top three by clicking on this link.

With this forever against his name, Adryan will hope that he can start to gain a better reputation for his footballing ability rather than his diving. The Flamengo player and Brazilian under-20 international, on loan in Yorkshire, has plenty of flair, but could do with adding some substance to his game.

The Leeds fans and his manager, Neil Redfearn, really need him to produce with the former Premier League giants teetering on the verge of relegation to League One again.
