Further proof that Spain dominates world football among women. The FC Barcelona player and world champion with the Spanish selection last summer succeeds her teammate Alexia Putellas. She won the women's Ballon d'Or this Monday evening in Paris. His first individual trophy. The 25-year-old midfielder beat Australian Sam Kerr (Chelsea) and fellow Spaniard Salma Paralluelo (FC Barcelona) on the podium.
“I am very proud to receive this Ballon d’Or,” declared the winner after receiving her trophy from the hands of Novak Djokovic, present in the capital for the ceremony. This year has been exceptional. Football is a team sport so I thank my teammates, Barça, without whom I would not be here. Thanks to my three former clubs for betting on me when few people believed in it. Who would have thought that I would one day play at Camp Nou? Thank you to my parents, to my family” She then addressed her partners: “We must live up to our responsibility. We must continue to fight together for a fairer and more equal world.”
