Dzsenifer Marozsán has been named the first UEFA Women's Champions League Midfielder of the Season at the UEFA Awards ceremony in Geneva.

The German playmaker once again made a huge contribution as Lyon retained the title, with a competition-leading five assists the main numerical evidence of her influence. The 28-year-old is the only player to have featured in the UEFA Women's Champions League Squad of the Season for each of the last six years. Indeed, Marozsán has now lifted the trophy five times – once with Frankfurt in 2015 before victories in all four of her campaigns with Lyon since joining in 2016.
