Putellas claims FIFA Best women award


Alexias Putellas secured the Best FIFA women’s prize despite spending the second half of last year out injured.

The 29-year-old Spaniard won the prize ahead of England’s European Championship-winning striker Beth Mead and United States star Alex Morgan to add the FIFA crown to the Ballon d’Or, which she has also won two years back to back.

Putellas is currently recovering from a serious knee injury suffered last July which ruled her out of the Euro in England with Spain.

Before getting the injury, Putellas scored 11 goals on Barcelona’s magnificent run to the Champions League final, which they lost to Lyon.

The talented midfielder hopes to return from injury in time to play again this season, but it remains unclear whether she will feature for Spain at the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in July and August.
