Pirlo and Klose up for award

Andrea Pirlo, Miroslav Klose, David Beckham and David Trezeguet are among the candidates for the 2013 Golden Foot Award.

Juventus and Italy hero Pirlo is there along with Lazio hitman Klose, while ex-Milan midfielder Beckham and former Bianconeri striker Trezeguet are also included.

Other candidates are Iker Casillas, Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, Samuel Eto’o and Andres Iniesta.

Every year a short-list of 10 candidates is drawn up and fans from around the world vote for who will have their feet immortalised in the Champions Promenade in Monte Carlo.

This is similar to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and so far includes stars like Francesco Totti, Andriy Shevchenko, Pavel Nedved, Hristo Stoichkov, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Paolo Rossi, Ronaldo, Gerd Muller, Diego Armando Maradona, Ronaldinho, Romario, Gigi Riva, Ferenc Puskas, Michel Platini and Gianni Rivera.

Players must be over 28 in order to qualify for the award.
