LaLiga News: Barcelona teenager Gavi wins the prestigious Copa Trophy

    Barcelona teenager Gavi won the prestigious Copa Trophy at the Ballon d’Or in Paris on Monday.

    The 18-year-old midfielder became the second successive Barça player to win the award for the world’s best player under 21, following fellow midfielder Pedri last year.

    Gavi has been a real eye-catcher since being promoted to the Catalan giants’ first team and has been rewarded for his brilliant breakthrough in the 2021-22 season.

    The youngster’s performances have also earned him a call to Spain and he is set to play in his first World Cup in Qatar.

    Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga finished second and Bayern Munich’s Jamal Musiala finished third, ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and Paris Saint-Germain’s Nuno Mendez.

    Gavi said: “I try to give my best all the time and try to apply myself in the best possible way.”

    He made 34 La Liga appearances last season, scoring twice and providing six assists while pulling strings in the middle of the field.
