Golden Woman AwardLake Martens once again received an individual award. The FC Barcelona and Orange striker was named the best footballer in Europe by Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport. Martins will receive the so-called Golden Woman award on December 13 in Turin.
The 28-year-old Limberger won all the trophies with Barcelona last season: the “double” in Spain and the overall Champions League win. In the Tuttosport elections, Martens received more votes from the governors than her Spanish colleague Jennifer Hermoso. Denmark’s Pernel Harder (Chelsea) finished third.
In 2017, after a starring role in the European Championship that the Netherlands won in their own country, both UEFA and FIFA were named Footballer of the Year. The left winger also has a chance to win the Ballon d’Or this year. Like Vivian Midema (Arsenal), Martens is one of twenty footballers who have been nominated for a France Football magazine award.
The Golden Woman Award is part of the Tuttosport Football Awards annually. The most famous of these, the Golden Boy award for the greatest talent in Europe, went to FC Barcelona’s Spanish midfielder Pedri. Polish striker Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich received the men’s award. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bayern Munich until recently, was honored with the Over Award.
