The Barça midfielder adds the award to the Kopa Trophy he won on Monday
Gavi Paez does not stop collecting recognition and congratulations from the world of football. Barca’s young midfielder is the new Golden Boy, an award presented last season by ‘Tuttosport’ magazine to the best European Under-21 player and in whose record he succeeds his team-mate Pedri, who distinguished the previous year.
At the age of 18, the footballer born in Los Palacios and Villafranca is confirmed as one of the great emerging talents of the old continent after winning the votes for budding stars of the caliber Eduardo Camavinga, Jude Bellingham and Jamal Musiala, who all had. have earned more than enough merit to attack the Golden Boy’s throne, only to have finally surrendered to the meteoric rise of Gavi, who has grown from a promise of La Masia to a fundamental figure in Xavi’s plans Hernández in Barça and Luis Enrique in the Spanish team.
Last season, Gavi played 47 games with the Barca first team, scoring two goals and providing five assists. To this we have to add his great rise in the Spanish team, making his debut in the Final Four of the League of Nations played in Italian countries last October. That was his cover letter on a big stage and the Andalusian shone with his attitude and confidence. His impact was such that Luis Enrique has made him a fixture in his calls and a guaranteed place for the World Cup in Qatar, where he emerges as a starter in a midfield that would be completed by Busquets and Pedri.
It should be remembered that Gavi’s outstanding performances at Barça and the Spanish team already earned him on Monday the prestigious Kopa trophy, awarded by the magazine ‘France Football’ to the best player under 21 and collected by the Sevillian during the Ballon d’Or Gala.
In addition to the award won by Gavi, the twentieth edition of the Golden Boy also rewards the work of Madrid fans Florentino Pérez, distinguished as ‘Golden President’; Karim Benzema, chosen as ‘Golden Player’ and Carlo Ancelotti, named ‘Golden Trainer’. In addition, Real Madrid has been selected as the best club in the world. Likewise, Alexia Putellas is awarded the ‘Golden Player Woman’ and Paolo Maldini is voted best sports director. The awards will be presented at a ceremony to be held on November 7 in Turin.
