Alexia Putellas crowned the Best by FIFA for the first time in her career. She also won the Ballon d’Or back in November.
The 27-year-old led Barcelona to the historic triple by winning Liga Iberdrola, Spanish Cup and Women’s Champions League. Blaugrana’s captain overcame Barcelona team-mate Jennifer Hermoso and Chelsea and Australia’s Sam Kerr to take the award. After already winning UEFA Best player of the year award and Ballon d’Or, the Spanish forward now holds all the most prestigious individual awards.
Emma Hayes named best coach, Christiane Endler the best goalkeeper
Chelsea’s coach, who took the Blues to the Women’s Champions League final for the first time, was named as the Best Women’s coach of the year. The 45-year-old former football player won the domestic triple (Women’s Super League, FA Cup, League cup).
A true inspiration to us all! 💙

Lyon’s goalkeeper Christiane Endler was named as the best goalkeeper. The 30-year-old, who transferred to Lyon from PSG in the summer, was one of the key players for Parisians success in the last season, when they won D1 Arkema League.
