Barcelona’s Pedri wins Golden Boy Award 2021

Barcelona and Spain midfielder Pedri has been awarded the Golden Boy Award 2021, given to the best emerging European talent every year. 

The midfielder finished ahead of second placed Borussia Dortmund and England’s Jude Bellingham with a margin of 199 points, which was the largest in the award’s history.

 

Kylian Mbappe, Matthijs de Ligt, Joao Felix and Erling Haaland were the previous winners of the award.

With the win, the Spaniard became the first player ever to be nominated for all of the Ballon d’Or, Kopa Trophy and Golden Boy in the same year.

“I am honored to receive the Golden Boy award. I want to thank everyone for supporting me this year. I’m thrilled,” the midfielder said after receiving the award.

Pedri has played more games than anyone else in the 2020/22 season, with 73 appearances, after which he was allowed a break by the Catalan Club.
