chance of going one better than in 2022. A thoroughly reckless attacker, Graham Hansen has been instrumental in Barcelona’s run domestically and in Europe for club and country.Lawson: No arguments from me. Graham Hansen is a phenomenon and, while there has been plenty of praise for the strength in depth to this Barcelona side, particularly in attack, the Norwegian wins the MVP by some distance. She’s influential beyond just her assists and goals; her movement and ability to take on multiple defenders opens up chances for others and while she hasn’t always taken up the greatest positions to score, her dribbling and first steps — plus the defenders tracking her whenever she gets the ball — has created a space for others to exploit.Recent games prove that Barcelona don’t necessarily need a 90-minute performance from Graham Hansen to win games, as other players have stepped up. She does, however, guarantee they’re always going to get one. In terms of bang for buck in this competition, she’s the one player the club will hope to have in top form for the next few months.
