Prestigious award for Nadine Kessler
 Women's Football News 29 Aug 2014
 
Prestigious award for Nadine Kessler - 29 Aug 2014 - Women's Football NewsWolfsburg's Champions League winning captain, Nadine Kessler was crowned the UEFA Women's Best Player in Europe in Monaco yesterday afternoon. 
 
The women's award, now in its second year, pitted Kessler against her two club team mates, Sweden's Nilla Fischer and German attacker Martina Muller, but it was 26-year-old midfielder Kessler who won the vote of the women's football press jury to lift the coveted prize.
 
Last year Kessler was fourth in this award but this season found herself in the shortlist of three after a magnificent campaign where she captained Wolfsburg to their second successive UEFA Women's Champions League and Frauen Bundesliga titles. Her famous dribble to set up team mate Muller for the winner in the Champions League final against Tyreso was described by the goalscorer as "50% Nadine and 50% me."
 
On winning the award, a delighted Kessler said: "It is something really special. To be honest I didn't even dream about it. It is a surprise for me. I had some great competitors with me, or better said, team mates. But I am simply over the moon.
 
"It is an award that gives me a confirmation that I have done everything right, that I worked really hard. It shows I was on the right track. In the end of course it is only possible with good teammates around you in order to develop in such a way."
 
The win for Kessler means that the award stays with Germany as international team mate and German number one goalkeeper Nadine Angerer lifted the prize last year.
 
The winner of the male award was Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid.
