Alexia Putellas named UEFA Player of the year

Alexia Putellas named UEFA Player of the year for the second consecutive time, becoming the first player to ever do so.

The 28-year-old, who suffered an ASL injury just before EURO and will likely miss most of the next season, led Barcelona to another Women’s Champions League final. Despite losing the final against Lyon, the Spanish midfielder topped the goalscorer standings of the competition. Blaugrana won another domestic double. In total, Putellas played 42 matches and scored 34 goals in the last season.

I feel very happy to win this award for the second consecutive year, especially right at this moment. Unfortunately, I’m not able to do what I love doing most, so being here again motivates me. The coming year will be a tough one for me but I want to get back to playing and training and to be able to do my job, which is what I like doing most. I’m working towards that with my recovery every day,” said Putellas for Uefa.com.

Alexia came first in voting with 97 points, followed by Beth Mead with 84 and Lena Oberdrof with 47 points.
