Godin: Make LFP votes public

Diego Godin believes the votes cast at the Spanish Football League (LFP) awards should be made public.

There has been mounting controversy in Spain after the LFP gala on Monday night, where despite having six nominees for an award – Thibaut Courtois, Felipe Luis, Miranda, Gabi, Koke and Diego Costa -not one Atletico Madrid player was honoured.

Uruguay international Godin is convinced he has the solution to put an end to the bad feeling that has simmered ever since.

“They need to make it public or reveal how the captains voted to make it more transparent. Only then would we stop guessing and deriding it,” he told AS.

“I think it would have been much fairer if my teammates had won but until we know how all the captains voted then we are just speculating.

“As an Atletico player I’d obviously like my teammates to have won. The only objective prizes to aim for are the La Liga winners, the Pichichi and the Zamora.

“But I’m not going to go round asking each captain who he has voted for as I don’t want this matter to drag on,” he explained.
