Sondage : Ada Hegerberg élue joueuse de l’année 2018 !

1. Ada Hegerberg (73% of the vote)

It couldn't have been any other way. Recently honored with the very first women's Ballon d'Or in history, Ada Hegerberg has received her latest personal accolade by being chosen OL's Female Player of the Year for 2018. The 23-year-old striker dominated the online fan poll with more than 70% of the votes thanks to a year full of goals and records.



In 2018, the Norwegian international clinched both the Women's D1 and Women's Champions League titles with Olympique Lyonnais. On a personal level, Hegerberg entered the European cup history books by scoring her 15th Champions League goal - including one in the final against Wolfsburg. In total, she completed the 2017-2018 season with 53 goals and has 19 to her name after 17 games in the current campaign. From the looks of it, she has barely scratched the surface.

2. Wendie Renard (13%) 

The iconic OL captain, who finished 7th in Ballon d'Or voting, also made history earlier this month against Guingamp by making her 327th appearance in all competitions for the club - breaking Camille Abily's long-standing record.   


3. Dzsenifer Marozsan, (7%)

The viral lung issue that kept Marozsan out of action over the summer was all but a distant memory by the time she returned in October. The German international, third in the Ballon d'Or, has been as sharp as ever, exhibiting her exquisite footballing vision game after game thanks to an extraordinary technique and world-class finishing skills.




3. Amandine Henry (7%)

After a year-long spell in the United States, Amandine Henry was back where she belonged by 2017 and once again wearing the Lyon uniform, re-establishing herself as a key member of a team she's now been a part of for a decade and finishing seventh in the Ballon d'Or voting this year.
