Alexia Putellas’ prowess and might

Technical, intelligent and frightening. These are the words that are used when it comes to defining the one and only Alexia Putellas. Only 28 years of age but over the years Alexia has established herself as one of the greatest female football players of all time proving her worth, ability and excellence over a number of occasions.

After all she is the femini Ballon D’or winner for the 2021 and now 2022 seasons with some staggering footballing brilliance and energy. Her efforts helped Barcelona win the Champions League which further made her secure the UEFA’s best women’s player of the year award, consistently adding honors and awards to her name.

To put all her accomplishments into perspective, Alexia made her professional debut at aged 16 playing for Espanyol. With the passage of time she paved her way back to her dream club in FC Barcelona for the 2012/13 season after the Catalan club realized her talent due to the short stints and spells at other Spanish clubs. What was next is nothing but history seeing how Alexia Putellas helped her club to two consecutive La Liga titles which is a remarkable feat given their struggles. Time went by and her influence over the Spanish team grew stronger seeing how her presence was now feared by opposition teams. Ruthless with a flair and a commanding headband that became her style and signature, Alexia Putellas was just kicking off.

The 2016/17 season was just another amazing feat as she broke into the FIFA World Pro XI this time as well scoring in important games such as the the Copa Del Ray final. The 18//19 season was statistically one of the best seasons ever witnessed by a female football player with Alexia going totally out of the zone with 16 goals in 19 assists in the La Liga which are remarkable numbers for a midfield player. The 20/21 was most definitely the proudest as being the vice captain, she started most games with the arm band considering Vicky Losada’s drop off in form which gave the pressure and the responsibility to Alexia which she nailed remarkably well and achieved history. Winning 4-0 in the Champions League final, drilling the Copa Del Ray and easily sailing the league, for the first time ever a femini club won the great Treble of the 3 major trophies all under the captaincy of Alexia Putellas.

However her career continued to peak and finally last season she broke all her personal records scoring 19 times in the league and assisting 15 goals securing the Ballon D’or femini as well as UEFA’s Women’s player of the year award.

Alexia Putellas is one of the most magical football players in the world and is in no mood to slow down seeing Barcelona femini’s dominance under her captaincy.
