Lyon's Ada Hegerberg Named BBC Women's Footballer Of The Year
This is the second time Hegerberg has received the accolade.
This is the second time Hegerberg has received the accolade.

Ada Hegerberg has been named the BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year for 2019.

The Norwegian striker, who plays for Olympique Lyonnais, was also the inaugural winner of the Ballon d'Or Féminin, which was awarded in 2018, and caps another remarkable year in which she has helped Lyon retained the Champions League for the fourth year running.

Hegerberg’s 16-minute hat-trick over Barcelona in the final at the Groupama Arena in Budapest allowed for a comfortable 4-1 win for Lyon.

This is the second time that the forward has collected this particular award from the BBC, having received it previously in 2017. This year she beat fellow nominees Pernille Harder of Wolfsburg, who came second, and Chicago Red Stars’ Sam Kerr in third. Her teammate Saki Kumagai and Lindsey Horan were also nominated.

23-year-old Hegerberg is now only eight goals away from besting the record goals tally in the Champions League, closing in on Anja Mittag’s 51, and has incredibly won 13 out of 15 possible trophies with Lyon.
