The best players of Barca Femeni other than Alexia Putellas
Maria Leon is the wall of Barcelona. She is sometimes called the ‘Carles Puyol’ of the Femeni team. She is a physical defender who can also play as a left-back. Her technique and speed help her to attack very well.
Her first club was Zaragoza CFF, where she debuted at 16 years of age. Mapi played at Espanyol during 2013/14 before joining Atletico Madrid the following season. Last season, in which Atleti claimed the Liga Femenina title, was the one where she came to everyone’s attention. Her performances saw her selected for the Spanish team that contested the European Championship in the summer. On August 24, 2017, she became an FC Barcelona player.
Jennifer Hermoso is the No.10 in the squad. She is a player who can score goals and makes assists in any situation. She is a natural leader who possesses a strong left foot and a big aerial presence.
She was brought up through the ranks at Atletico Madrid and coming to the fore at Rayo Vallecano, Madrid-born Jennifer Hermoso joined Barça in the winter of 2014 after a season at Swedish side Tyresso. In 2017 she left to join PSG, returning to LaLiga and Atletico Madrid a year later. Her second spell at Barça would come when she was signed again in 2019. Hermoso was the top goalscorer in the league during the three seasons before her rejoining Barca.
Asisat Oshola is one of the best African players in the world. The striker has been chosen as African Player of the Year on no less than four occasions, in 2019, 2014, 2016 and 2017. The year 2014 was a stellar one for the Nigerian as she also claimed the Golden Shoe at the U20 World Cup. Oshola has great experience despite her youth, having played for Arsenal in 2016 alongside Vicky Losada and for Liverpool the previous year in the English top division of Women’s Football.
During a spell in China, she was the top scorer in the 2017 Superleague. The striker came to FC Barcelona on loan from Chinese club Dalian Quanjian and was presented as a Barca player in January 2019.
