Gavi wins the Kopa Award 2022!

Pablo Martín Páez Gavira, better known as Gavi, has won the Kopa Trophy this Monday in Paris as the best young U21 player in the world in 2022. The 18-year-old Barça midfielder takes over from Pedri, who was in 2021 (he doubled with the Golden Boy award).

Gavi has outvoted other young promises (many of them already realities) such as Adeyemi, Bellingham, Gravenberch, Nuno Mendes, Musiala, Camavinga, Gvardiol, Wirtz and Saka.

The Sevillian footballer, a regular in Xavi Hernández’s line-ups and in Luis Enrique’s lists with the Spanish National Team, played three editions of MICFootball (2016, 2018 & 2019) with the FC Barcelona shirt.

From the MIC organization we want to congratulate him for the award and for his dizzying career. The best is yet to come!
