Ballon d’Or 2022: Barcelona midfielder Alexia Putellas retains
The awards ceremony for the last season from the French newspaper France Football is underway. According to the results of the voting, the award as the best female player was presented to the striker of Barcelona, Alexia Putellas.
Barcelona midfielder Alexia Putellas has won the Ballon d’Or for the second year in a row.
This year, the Feminin Ballon d’Or is awarded for performance in the 2021–22 season, not for the calendar year.
The Spaniard missed Euro 2022 due to a painful injury on the eve of the tournament, which could exclude her from next year’s World Cup as well, but the vote was judged throughout the season.
BACK TO BACK WINNER!
