Fotosports International photographer Robin Parker wins the very prestigious Barclays Shot of the 20 Seasons award with the picture below of Wayne Rooney scoring a spectacular overhead kick against their Manchester rivals at Old Trafford last year.
Robin commented “For my photo to be chosen as the best shot in the history of the League is very humbling, and something I will cherish for the rest of my career.
“It was an iconic moment, and one that was seen all over the world, so to capture it in the way that I did was extremely satisfying.”
Manchester City’s first UEFA Champions League campaign came to an end despite a convincing win over an under-strength Bayern Munich tonight. David Silva and Yaya Toure struck for City as they produced a fine attacking display to keep their slim hopes of qualifying from Group A alive, but Napoli’s win over Villarreal undid them.
