11. Alexia


A skilful attacking midfielder and leader on the pitch who brings goals, assists, and a winning mentality

One of the stars of the Women’s team since her arrival in 2012 as an 18 year old. Alexia Putellas was born in nearby Mollet, is a Spanish international and was chosen as Catalan player of the year in 2015.

She scored the first ever goal for the women’s team at the Estadi Johan Cruyff and in the Camp Nou in the modern era. In 2021 she was named UEFA Player of the Year, Best Midfielder in the 2020/21 Champions League (she scored the second goal in the final in Gothenburg),  and she won the Ballon d’Or in November 2021 as well as becoming the first female footballer to be awarded the Sant Jordi Cross. In early 2022 she was also rewarded with the FIFA The Best award for the previous calendar year. 

The season 2021/22 saw continued success for the midfielder with Barça winning a domestic treble of the league, the Copa de la Reina and the Super Cup. Individual success also followed with Alexia being named UEFA Player of the Year, Ballon d'Or, FIFA The Best once again for 2022 and also included in the FIFPro XI for 2022. 

A full Spanish international since 2013, Alexia's greatest success with the national team came in the 2023 World Cup with Spain crowned champions. 


A cultured left foot is just one element of the array of weapons Putellas has at her disposal. She is not afraid to take players on, create in midfield or try her luck from distance give she strikes the ball so well.
