Alexia, awarded at the ‘Sport Culture Barcelona Awards 2021’

Alexia Putellas adds a new distinction. The captain of FC Barcelona has been awarded in the Barcelona Sport Culture Awards 2021 in the sports category. The Ballon d’Or 2021 has not been able to attend the event, since it is concentrated with the Spanish team. Xavier Puig, director of FC Barcelona responsible for women’s football, has represented her.

The 11 culer has received this award for being considered a relevant person in the field of Culture and Sport for Barcelona Sport Culture Awards 2021. Remember that the talented midfielder was also chosen the best player in the last edition of the Champions League, she also won the Ballon d’Or and the FIFA World Player and that she is the second player in the history of the Women’s Championship with the most games played.

At the gala that was held this afternoon on June 20 at the headquarters of the RBA Foundation, Xavier Puig was the Barça representative and was in charge of collecting Alexia’s award. “It means a lot to Alexia,” said the manager responsible for women’s soccer. “Surely this award is in part for all those with whom he has played over the years, for their coaches, for the Club directors, and of course, for the fans”, he added.

Xavi Puig’s speech continued and praised the work of the Barca Women: “It is a strategic section that must go further, with a style of play that Johann Cruyff gave us, but also in the social field to build a better society, with gender equality, a fundamental element for society and the world to better”.
