Aitana Bonmati is the Queen of Football, she has won the 2023 Ballon d’Or awards. 

Bonmati had an outstanding year for club and country, winning the 2022-23 Liga F and Champions League with Barcelona and the 2023 World Cup with Spain.

Sam Kerr and Salma Paralluelo came second and third respectively in the women’s award.

Spain’s Bonmati succeeds her Barcelona and international teammate Alexia Putellas, winner of the Ballon d’Or Feminin in 2021 and 2022.

“I’m very proud to win this Ballon d’Or tonight,” Bonmati said after receiving the award.

“It’s an individual prize but football is a team sport, so I’d like to extend this prize to my teammates and staff at Barcelona, and my international teammates as well. I wouldn’t be here without them.”

Bonmati also won the Golden Ball award at the World Cup earlier this year, as well as the UEFA Women’s player of the year and Champions League player of the season awards for last season.

During the 2022-23 campaign, the midfielder scored 19 goals in 37 matches across all competitions for Barcelona as they won their fourth Liga F title in a row and secured a second Champions League triumph. She also netted three times at the World Cup.

The women’s trophy was created in 2018, and both were cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic.
