Alexia PutellasBarcelona midfielder, has starred this Sunday in a beautiful gesture with his partner Melanie Serrano, who announced his retirement at the end of this season. As soon as the final of the queen’s cup at the Santo Domingo stadium in Alcorcón, with the azulgranas thrashing against Sporting de Huelva (6-1), Alexia gave Melanie the trophy so that she could raise it to the sky in Madrid, despite the fact that she did not play in the final phase of the KO tournament due to injury.
Putellas, one of the captains of the Barça team and considered by many to be the best player in the world today after winning the women’s Ballon d’Or last November, collected the Queen’s Cup in the Santo Domingo box, where the president of Barça was also there, Joan Laportaand lowered the trophy to the grass.
His teammates were waiting for him there and Alexia Putellas wanted Melanie Serrano to be the one to lift the trophy at his farewell as a footballer, despite the fact that he had not been able to play in the final phase of the Copa de la Reina for a knee problem.
Melanie Serrano, born in Seville 32 years ago, played her last game as a Barcelona player against Atlético de Madrid, on the last day of the Primera Iberdrola. In mid-May she announced her retirement and now she has been able to say goodbye to the pitch lifting a trophy.
The Sevillian is the player with the most appearances in the history of Barça, where she has spent 18 seasons and with whom she has won as many titles.
