Alexia Putellas Best FIFA Women’s Player award for the second year in the row. England’s coach won Sarina Wiegman The Best FIFA Women’s Coach award, while Lioness goalkeeper Mary Earps won The BEST FIFA Goalkeeper award.
The award who recognizes the most outstanding performer in women’s game from August 2021 to July 2022 went again into the hands of the Spanish midfielder, who captained the team to treble in Liga F, Copa de la Reina and Women’s Champions League in 2021/22 season. Putellas scored 34 goals in the season and topped the Best vote ahead of Beth Mead and Alex Morgan.
Sarina Wiegman, who led the England’s national team to the historic title in the Women’s EURO last year, has won the BEST Women’s Coach award for the third time after securing the prize in 2017 and 2020. The 53-year-old came ahead of Lyon boss Sonia Bompastor and Brazil head coach Pia Sundhage in the vote. Wiegman is the only coach, who won the award more than once.
