By Mukwuzi Joseph

Barcelona teenager Pedri has won the European Golden Boy award after a remarkable calendar year for the Catalans and Spain

The 18-year-old midfielder played over 50 times in his first season for the LaLiga giants last term, before going on to be a key player for the Spanish national team at the European Championships and Olympic Games over the summer. 

Pedri is now the first Barcelona player to win the award since Lionel Messi picked up the prize in 2005 and joins the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Erling Braut Haaland in claiming the honour in recent years.
