Over 30,000 Barclays Premier League fans from across 200 countries and territories including 2,350 from India have united to take part in the 2012 Barclays Global Fans Survey. The poll asked fans through a dedicated website to give their opinions on the Barclays Premier League such as their favourite players providing a unique insight into the lifestyle and views of fans across six continents.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney topped the vote with almost one third of Indian fans voting him as the best current player in the Barclays Premier League. One fifth of fans named Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the most exciting new prospect over the next five years with the young England star claiming 17% of the vote.
England and Manchester United striker, Wayne Rooney said: "It's great to be recognised by the fans in this survey. I get messages from fans all over the world so I know how popular the Barclays Premier league is outside of the UK."
