Expressing her sentiments after winning the women's Ballon d'Or, Aitana Bonmati emphasized the significance of Spain's rich football culture, highlighting how her victory contributes to the country's strong football legacy, which has now retained the prestigious award for three consecutive years.
As a key figure in Barcelona's Champions League triumph and a vital player in Spain's World Cup victory, Bonmati follows in the footsteps of her compatriot, Alexia Putellas, who clinched the award in 2021.
Speaking to the press, Bonmati underscored Spain's unique football ethos and the nation's continuous dedication to excellence. "It says a lot that we won the Ballon d'Or three times in a row. We are a country that lives football, and we work hard every day to be the best," she remarked.
Despite her impressive collection of major titles, Bonmati remains driven to achieve more. Nervously excited at the grand ceremony of global football, the 25-year-old expressed her unwavering dedication to reaching new heights. "I play for a big club and for the national team. In both, I have the best players and coaches," she explained. "I'm confident... we're going to win more titles."
