Alexia Putellas has been named the 2021/22 UEFA Women’s Champions League Player of the Season, having finished as the competition’s top scorer during Barcelona’s run to the final.

Barcelona went into this season’s competition as defending champions for the very first time in their history, after triumphing in emphatic style during the 2020/21 campaign.

The Spanish champions reached their third Champions League final in four seasons, but were beaten 3-1 by Lyon in Turin as the French outfit wrestled back their European crown.

Captain Putellas was integral to Barcelona’s run to the final, netting 11 goals in ten appearances – three of which came at Camp Nou during knockout stage victories over Wolfsburg and Real Madrid.

The midfielder was also on the scoresheet in the final, thumping home Caroline Graham Hansen’s cross on the stroke of half-time to offer Barcelona a glimmer of hope. However, the goal proved to be just a consolation.
