Aitana Bonmatí is the Ballon d'Or and to celebrate the fact, FC Barcelona and the local council surprised the Barça Women player with a mural in her home town of Sant Pere de Ribes.
After arriving from Switzerland where she helped the Spanish national side to a 7-1 on Tuesday, the best female player in the world took the time to visit the art work created for her in person. The Barça midfielder was welcomed by the Sant Pere de Ribes mayor, Abigail Garrido, with the Catalan urban artist FERT.ONE, responsible for the mural, also present. Together, they discussed the work and its inspiration with Aitana adding her signature to the artist's creation.
The Catalan footballer posed for photographs with the Ballon d'Or trophy and with the artist, FERT.ONE. Then, local residents were allowed to have their photographs taken with the home town hero who also signed shirts for the fans.
Aitana looked almost as pleased with the mural as she was with the Ballon d'Or. "It's a beautiful mural. I had seen it on social media and it seemed magnificent and the artist is a great one. The image is really nice, from who I was to who I have become," she beamed.
"I am the same person, but now I have achieved so many things. I have always considered myself to be an ambitious person and the consistency and demands on myself have been worth it. Tough moments are what make you better and I am still anxious to keep improving and bring joy to Culers around the world," she said before concluding: " I am really looking forward to bring the Ballon d'Or home to the Estadi Johan Cruyff this Sunday to share it with the fans."
