Alexia shines in Paris following Barça’s win

Alexia Putellas also made her mark in Paris. The day after Xavi Hernández‘s FC Barcelona gave an impressive performance at the Parc des Princes, winning 2-3 to move closer to the Champions League semi-finals, the Barça midfielder traveled to the French capital to attend an event by Nike. This event showcased the Olympic kits of athletes sponsored by the North American brand.

The two-time Ballon d’Or winner, who was accompanied by her Barça teammate Salma Paralluelo, had the honor of unveiling a statue in her likeness. Situated at the Paris Stock Exchange, alongside other renowned international athletes like Mbappé, LeBron James, Bebe Vio, Sha’Carri Richardson, and Wembanyama, Alexia can proudly claim her status as a role model even in the City of Light.

The 10-meter statue depicts Alexia Putellas in action on the field. Despite facing some injury setbacks this past season, the Barça captain’s popularity remains strong as she continues negotiations for her future.
