Guardiola's admiration for Bonmatí's playing style was evident as he drew a glowing comparison.

"Aitana is a footballer that I am completely in love with the way she plays. I would say that she is like the Iniesta of women's football."

Further adding to the recognition of FC Barcelona's influence on the global stage of women's football, the British team's coach acknowledged the remarkable impact the current Barça team has had, particularly in the ongoing World Cup in Australia.

In the broader context, Aitana Bonmatí is poised as a strong contender for the coveted UEFA Player of the Year award. Her impressive accomplishments include clinching both the league and Champions League titles with FC Barcelona, where she has emerged as one of the most exceptional talents in Jonatan Giráldez's squad. 

While the international organization is set to reveal the votes next week, the ultimate victor of the award will be unveiled on August 31 during the Champions League draw.

With the World Cup final on the horizon and the accolades piling up for Aitana Bonmatí, the footballing world awaits in anticipation, eager to witness the unfolding drama and the pivotal role she will play in the upcoming match against England.
