Melo voted worst in Serie A

MILAN - Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo - strongly linked with a move to Arsenal over the summer - has received Italy's famous "Golden Bin" award after being voted the worst Serie A player this year by listeners of a radio show.

The 26-year-old narrowly beat last year's winner Ricardo Quaresma of Inter Milan in the voting, Rai show Catersport said on its website on Monday.

The Brazil international moved to Juve from Fiorentina for 20.5 million euros in July but has struggled in Turin.
