Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo named the 2009 Flop of the Year.
Naturally, Melo took exception to his award and blamed it on sour grapes coming from Florence fans who were upset by his move to Juventus this season. Juventus has not played up to its typically lofty standards this season. It currently sits in third place, six points behind Inter, and lost yesterday to recently promoted Bari. Some fans blame the signing of Melo for its current problems.
