Bonmati Claims 2023 Women's Ballon D'Or Prize

Bonmati Claims 2023 Women's Ballon D'Or Prize

Barcelona midfielder Aitana Bonmati won the Women's Ballon d'Or for the first time following her World Cup success with Spain.

The 25-year-old played in all seven games at the World Cup, scoring three goals and providing two assists to earn the Golden Ball for the best player at the tournament.

She also helped Barca to a league and Champions League double, contributing nine goals and 10 assists in the Primera Division and netting five goals in 11 Champions League matches last season.

"I'm very proud to receive this Ballon d’Or tonight. It’s been a quite unique level, football-wise," said Bonmati after being awarded the prize.

"It’s an individual award but football is a team sport so I’d like to extend this prize to my team-mates, the staff, everyone involved at Barcelona, all my international team-mates as well.

"I wouldn’t be here without them, I wouldn't have the same success."

Bonmati, who was recently named UEFA Women's Player of the Year, beat England players Mary Earps, Georgia Stanway, Rachel Daly and Millie Bright to the fifth edition of the award.

She has now become the second Spanish player to win the Women's Ballon d'Or after Barcelona compatriot Alexia Putellas was awarded the prize for the last two years.
