Rasheedat Ajibade is Atlético de Madrid Femenino player of the season

Nigeria’s Rasheedat Ajibade is a key player for Atlético de Madrid Femenino. After an outstanding 2023/24 season the 24-year-old forward has been named Player of the Season by the Spanish club.

Ajibade’s remarkable performance earned her the prestigious award, announced by Atlético de Madrid Femenino on their official X (formerly Twitter) account on Wednesday, June 19th.

Nicknamed ‘Rash’ or ‘the girl with the blue hair,’ Ajibade was in exceptional form throughout the 2023/2024 season. She contributed significantly to her team’s success with 18 goal contributions—scoring 10 goals and providing eight assists. Her crucial goal in a 1-0 victory over Villarreal ensured Atlético de Madrid Femenino’s qualification for the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Ajibade’s impressive club form has raised hopes for the Super Falcons as they prepare for the 2024 Paris Olympics. After missing the last four editions (16 years), Nigeria aims to make a strong comeback. The Super Falcons are placed in Group C, where they will face Brazil, Spain, and Japan.

Ajibade’s success at Atlético de Madrid Femenino highlights her growing influence in women’s football and brings optimism to Nigerian fans for her contributions to the national team as they head to Paris for the Olympic games.
